The Art and Architecture in and Around Liverpool Adrian Sumner Wednesday 10 October 2018

Wednesday 10th October 2018
at The Red House, Albrighton WV7 3LU
10.00 for 10.30am start, finish at 3.00pm approx.

The day will cost £20 to members and £23 to non-members. A buffet lunch will be available at a cost of £12.50 per person (dependent on at least 30 people requiring lunch).


Liverpool and Merseyside are celebrated these days for their great cultural explosion in the 1960s and their
rising from the ashes of the 1970s. But they also have a long history of arts patronage and collecting, the
result being collections of international standing, and a wealth of architecture in styles from Neo-Classical
via Arts and Crafts to Art Deco and beyond. We will look at the Walker and Tate Galleries, featuring
painting and sculpture from a surprising range of great masters, stately homes in Merseyside and Wirral,
plus such hidden gems as the Lady Lever Art Gallery and the surrounding Port Sunlight Village.
Featured artists will include Burne-Jones, Millais, Rossetti and many Pre-Raphaelite favourites. Featured
buildings will include the ‘Three Graces’ on the waterfront, Art Deco masterpieces such as the Philharmonic
Hall and Giles Gilbert Scott’s Anglican Cathedral, and Alfred Waterhouse’s Gothic revival Victoria Building.
