19th century collection

Part one

The Walker Art Gallery is perhaps most famous for its collection of 19th century art. The gallery was founded in 1873 primarily to display and collect work of that period. This policy resulted in a comprehensive and exceptional collection of high and late Victorian art.

Liverpool also had a strong connection with the Pre-Raphaelite movement |and this too is reflected in the gallery.

Please note that this is only a selection from our collection.
