Lady Lever Art Gallery

On Monday CJ and I went to the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight on The Wirral.  The Gallery, which owes its existence to the first Viscount Leverhulme (who also owned a large part of the Isle of Lewis), houses a thrilling array of art of many genres including a fine collection of pictorial art of the Pre-Raphaelites for whom, for some unaccountable reason, I have been drawn since my early 20s.

The Gallery is seen in the distance at the end of a wide avenue of trees and gardens with an ornamental fountain in front of the Gallery.
