Our galleries will feature in the episode that looks at Victorian art, in particular at nudes and themes of sensuality. I had no idea quite how many naked people there are in both galleries. In case you are unsure let me tell you there is a lot and it turns out the Victorians were not as reserved as you might have imagined.
The writer Howard Jacobson was the presenter. He is Manchester-born and has known the Walker Art Gallery since a young age but this was his first visit to the Lady Lever, which he was hugely impressed by.
Unfortunately it is a long wait before what looks to be a really fascinating and thorough insight into British art hits our screens in Autumn next year but we’ll keep you posted with dates when we have them.
