Now the Victoriana ~ The Art of Revival Exhibition has been laid to rest, this gallery has been transformed back into the London Gallery.
Paintings long in storage are now seeing the light of day, the old mixed with new. An excellent selection from a guiding point of view as they include prominent landmark stops throughout London.
For those of us who have missed the great visual aid to explain some of the City's governance, The Ceremony of Swearing in Alderman Nathaniel Newman 1782 by William Miller is now hung in Level A1 on the floor for Special Exhibitions and the long awaited arrival of the 'half' canvas Fire Judge is placed nearby.
Have no fear, Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilees Service June 22nd by Andrew Garrick Gow is hung in the same gallery, always interesting and the endless guessing game continues as to 'who is who'!

The Atkinson Grimshaw has been placed in a new position so this lovely 'moonlight' painting can be admired from a satisfying distance.
Please go and see this new hang, there are many more new paintings to see.
