Leeds Art Gallery

When a visitor enters the Leeds Art Gallery their artistic instincts are at once awakened. The wide varieties of artworks on display in the gallery are a visitor’s heaven. The Art Gallery itself is representative of true culture and heritage in Leeds and a must on a tourist’s schedule. A lover of classic art will find traditional prints, watercolor depictions, paintings and sculptures. A person who is more at home with the contemporary arts will find modern symbols of artistic sculptures – works made with plastic grapes and twin tubs. Some of the most outstanding works of British art outside London are available at Leeds Art Gallery.

The Leeds City Art Gallery is situated at the Headrow, or you can visit Leeds City Art Gallery online. The website provides a comprehensive landscape of the Art Gallery and its exhibits and facilities. There is also a map displayed for first time visitors so that they can find their favourite areas of interest quickly and easily.

The Leeds City Art Gallery is located in the city centre. It’s next to the Central Library and close to the Town Hall. It’s only five minutes walk from both the railway station and the nearest bus service. The Gallery opens every day at 10am and remains open till 5pm from Monday to Saturday. On Sundays, the Gallery is only open in the afternoon until 5 and is closed on Bank Holidays.

The Gallery has been constructed in such a way that visitors with wheelchairs can access all parts of the ground floor gallery. All the displays are labelled at wheelchair height. A lift enables access for all to the first floor. Staff are always at hand to assist any visitors with special requirements. There are also disabled toilets on the ground floor just next to the lift. Those who are visually impaired will only be permitted to touch objects with the assistance of a staff member, provided on request. A few of the exhibited items also have sound, so an induction loop has been installed in the lecture theatre for the deaf or those who are hard of hearing.

A number of seats are spread over the Gallery for visitors feeling tired or wanting to discuss what they have seen. There is a Café Zone in the first Floor and also a Lower Sculpture Gallery. A bookstall is situated at the main entrance where large maps of the Gallery and large print labels are available. One basic shortfall in the facilities provided to the visitors is the absence of parking facilities. Only disabled badge holders can park free of charge on the street at the street parking meters. Or they may park their vehicles in the ‘pay and display’ spaces in the streets. Information relating to parking facilities and times are available at the Department of Highways and Transportation.

The Leeds Art Gallery hosts contemporary touring exhibitions and other programmes throughout the year. A recent exhibition, entitled ‘Paranoia’, was based on the current theme of uncertainty, unrest, unease and violence. The exhibition included video, photography, performances, installation, drawing and digital technology. Artists from all parts of the globe with very different ethnic and cultural backgrounds displayed their works, many from the United States, Europe and the Middle East. The exhibition was supported by the Art Council of England. Other such events that took place this year were ‘Ways of Seeing’ and ‘Rose and Heather’ by Emma Bolland.

There is a unique opportunity offered by the Leeds Art Gallery to the residents of Leeds. The Gallery allows the residents to borrow arts and pictures for three months on payment of a small fee. The residents have to provide authentic proof of their address. Items that are lent include oil paintings, original artists’ prints, drawings, including those rendered by the local artists. Reproduction of permanent works is also provided including the prints that are available for purchase at the local shop.

The City Art Gallery at Leeds has something to offer for most art lovers. It is not surprising therefore that it is visited by numerous foreign visitors all year round. Since it provides some unique facilities for Leeds residents, they love to visit the Gallery. It is certainly considered to be a prime spot not only in Leeds but in the entire United Kingdom.

Chapters: Sotheby’s, Imperial Porcelain Factory, Muirfield, York Theatre Royal, Broad Bottom Ministry, Divan Club, Cork North Infirmary, Dommelsch. Excerpt: Sotheby’s is the world’s fourth oldest auction house in continuous operation. The oldest auction house in operation is the Stockholms Auktionsverk founded in 1674, the second oldest is Göteborgs Auktionsverk founded in 1681 and third oldest being Uppsala Auktionskammare founded in 1731, all Swedish. Sotheby’s predecessor, Baker’s, was founded in London, England on 11 March 1744 when Samuel Baker presided over the disposal of “several hundred scarce and valuable” books from the library of a certain Rt. Hon. Sir John Stanley. This disposal however was not by means of auction and as Frank Herrmann and Brian Learmount observe, the business did not seek to auction fine arts in general until much later, their first major success in this field being the sale of a Frans Hals painting for 9 thousand guineas as late as 1913. The current business dates back to 1804 when two of the partners of the original business (Leigh and Sotheby) left to set up their own book dealership. Today, the firm has an annual turnover of approximately US$3 billion, and offices on London’s New Bond Street and Manhattan’s York Avenue. This position has been achieved through natural growth, acquisitions (most notably the 1964 purchase of the United States’ largest auctioneer of fine art, Parke-Bernet), and management during the cyclical “art recessions” of the 20th century. Sotheby’s New York completed renovations on its York Avenue headquarters in 2001 adding the unique capability to store works on the same premises as the specialist departments, galleries, and auction spaces. Sotheby’s New York’s offices also house Aulden Cellars. More:

 Art Critic


Art Critic


$65


An art critic is a person who specializes in evaluating art. Their written critiques, or reviews, are published in newspapers, magazines, books and on web sites. Art collectors and patrons often utilize the advice of art critics as a way to enhance their appreciation of the art they are viewing. Typically the art critic views art at exhibitions, galleries, museums or artists’ studios. Professional art critics are expected to have a keen eye for art and a thorough knowledge of art history. Knowledge, however, provides no guarantee that a critic will know if a work of art, an exhibition, or an artist will stand out in history as “great”. The opinions of art critics has the potential to stir debate on art related topics. Due to this the viewpoints of art critics writing for art publications and newspapers adds to public discourse concerning art and culture. Some of today’s art critics use art blogs and other online platforms in order to connect with a wider audience and expand debate about art.

The massive brick building sits at the corner of Tillman Avenue and Butternut Street in the residential section adjacent to the three thousand block of Michigan Avenue. The building is an imposing presence in the neighbhorhood of small, late nineteenth century houses and cottages, measuring seventy feet on Tillman and one hundred feet on Butternut. The design of the structure is urban and pedestrian friendly, with no setback from the sidewalk and double door entrances on both Tillman and Butternut. A review of Sanborn Insurance maps from the time period shows that the building was originally built without a parking lot, indicating a pedestrian connection with the surrounding neighborhood. According to the building permit issued March 20, 1914, the Bohemian National Home (Cesky Norodni Dum, as written in stone on the front of the building) was built by a group

The Cyprean and Myciaenian collection is also notable, also the ceramics and bronzes. The 3000 paintings in the collection offer an almost uninterrupted survey of the development of European painting from the 13th to the late 18th centuries. The core of the collection is

Excerpt: The Capitoline Museums (Italian Musei Capitolini ) are a group of art and archeological museums in Piazza del Campidoglio , on top of the Capitoline Hill in Rome , Italy . The museums are contained in three palazzi surrounding a central trapezoidal piazza in a plan conceived by Michelangelo Buonarroti in 1536 and executed over a period of over 400 years. The history of the museums can be traced to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a collection of important ancient bronzes to the people of Rome and located them on Capitoline Hill. Since then, the museums’ collection has grown to include a large number of ancient Roman statues, inscriptions, and other artifacts; a collection of medieval and Renaissance art; and collections of jewels , coins , and other items. The museums are owned and operated by the municipality of Rome .The statue of a mounted rider in the centre of the piazza is of Emperor Marcus Aurelius . It is a copy, the original being housed on-site in the Capitoline museum. Many Roman statues were destroyed on the orders of Christian Church authorities in the Middle Ages; this statue was preserved in the erroneous belief that it depicted the Emperor Constantine, who made Christianity the official state religion of the Roman empire .Buildings The Palazzo dei Conservatori is one of the three main buildings of the Capitoline Museums.galleryThis section contains collections sorted by building,

Excerpt: Statens Museum for Kunst (English: National Art Museum) is the Danish national gallery located in Copenhagen. The museum collects, registers, maintains, researches in and handles Danish and foreign art dating from the 14th Century till the present day, mostly with their origins in western culture circles. As far as the Danish art is concerned the museum must invest in and maintain representative collections. The collections of the Danish National Gallery originates in the Art Chamber (Danish: Kunstkammeret) of the Danish monarchs. When the German Gerhard Morell became Keeper of Frederik V’s Art Chamber about 1750, he suggested that the king create a separate collection of paintings. To ensure that the collection was not inferior to those of other European royal houses and local counts, the king made large-scale purchases of Italian, Netherlandish and German paintings. The collection became particularly well provided with Flemish and Dutch art. The most important purchase during Morell’s term as Keeper was Christ as the Suffering Redeemer by Andrea Mantegna. Since then a great variety of purchases have been made. During the 19th century the works were almost exclusively by Danish artists, and for this reason the Museum has an unrivalled collection of paintings from the so-called Danish Golden Age. That the country was able to produce pictures of high artistic quality was something new, and a consequence of the establishment of the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in 1754. More recently, the collection has been influenced by generous donations and long-term. More:
