What: Visit Guildhall Art Gallery When: Guildhall Art Gallery will reopen on Saturday 1 August, for weekends only. The Gallery shows a changing display of about 250 artworks from its collection of paintings, drawings and sculpture, in addition to a programme of temporary exhibitions. The Gallery is also responsible for significant works of art held elsewhere including the monuments in the Guildhall, statues in the Old Bailey and further sculptures and the Harold Samuel Collection of 17th Century Dutch and Flemish Paintings at Mansion House, the Lord Mayor's residence. On display now: The Enchanted Interior - extended until 30 August This major exhibition explores the recurring motif of female subjects in art, as depicted in enclosed, ornate interiors. Such images are inherently alluring yet sinister, carrying implications of enforced isolation. This theme is prevalent in nineteenth-century British painting, with many Pre-Raphaelites and Orientalists showing a fascination with the so-called ‘gilded cage’. Visitors will encounter work by a breath-taking variety of artists from the high Victorian through to Art Nouveau, Aestheticism, Surrealism, and pieces by contemporary women artists, who ‘speak back’ to the historic tradition. The Enchanted Interior is brought to Guildhall Art Gallery in partnership with Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle, and features key works from these and other national collections. Permanent exhibits include Victorian Paintings and Pictures of London For more info: https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/attractions-museums-entertainment/guildhall-galleries/guildhall-art-gallery/visit-guildhall-art-gallery Opening times: Weekends only, 10.30am-5pm (last entry 4pm) Cost: Free Book here: https://guildhall-art-gallery.arttickets.org.uk/
