There is a lot to discover and the first of our new displays Your Collection 1800 – 1920 is open in the Centenary Galleries (which can be reached down the stairs adjacent to the outside terrace).

Occupying the Centenary Galleries is Your Collection 1800 – 1920. This period was a time of great artistic and social change, and the works on display represent some of the era's major artistic movements, including Neo-Classicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, Symbolism and the beginnings of Modernism.
