We’ve just released a new video to give you all a sneak preview of our upcoming exhibition ‘A Collector’s Eye: Cranach to Pissarro’, opening on Friday 18 February at the Walker Art Gallery! 

Our video gives a taste of what’s going to be on display and lets you ‘zoom in’ and get closer to some of the paintings.

The exhibition will show the changing tastes of prolific art collector, David Lewis and his family. Expect to see serene landscapes by Sisley, a dramatic battle scene by Rubens and stunning portraits like the Vouet work pictured above.
