Catch Stubbs before he gallops off

There’s only a few days left to catch two major exhibitions at the Walker, A Passion for Fashion and George Stubbs: A Celebration, both of which close on Sunday 30 July. So why not avoid the rain that’s forecast for the weekend with a visit to the gallery.

The Stubbs exhibition, which features popular paintings from the Walker’s collections including Molly Longlegs and A Horse Frightened by a Lion, will travel to Tate Britain in London then across the Atlantic to the Frick Collection in New York.

While our paintings are away from the gallery, you can still see them on the website in our online featured artist section on Stubbs.
