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.

If you want to see the exhibition before everyone else, then enter our Twitter competition! Up for grabs are 3 pairs of tickets to the private view of the exhibition at the Walker on Thursday 17 February. Read more…

The ‘A Collector’s Eye’ catalogue

Just a few weeks to the opening of the next must-see exhibition at the Walker, ‘A Collector’s Eye: Cranach to Pissarro’. Old Masters like Rubens, El Greco, Delacroix and Cranach are included alongside Impressionists such as Pissarro and Sisley in a tour of five centuries of art.

If you can’t make it to the exhibition, fancy doing a bit of reading in advance or just can’t wait to visit, then the accompanying catalogue is for you. All of the exhibition works are featured, each with its own double page spread, and at £9.99 it’s a snip at twice the price. Read more…
