LONDONíS SMALLER ART COLLECTIONS

A gallery-based course which aims to explore London’s lesser-known and often overlooked art collections. One advantage of the smaller collection is that it can often be seen in its entirety and its setting is an integral part of the experience. Students meet at the venue where they’ll be led on a guided visit and encouraged to discuss a range of painting, sculpture, architecture and decorative art.


THE GUILDHALL ART GALLERY

The City of London began collecting artworks in the 17th century and since the Second World War the Guildhall collection has concentrated on London subjects. The gallery shows 250 works of art at a time (of its 4,000) with a programme of temporary exhibitions. Highlights include Millais’ The Woodsmans Daughter 1851; Rossetti’s La Ghirlandata, 1871-4; Constable’s Salisbury Cathedral 1829-31; John Singleton Copley’s epic Defeat of the Floating Batteries at Gibraltar, September 1782, 1783-1791; and London’s only Roman amphitheatre uncov ered by archaeologists in 1988.
