No website is complete without a links page! The first category, the Fine Art sites is followed by Affiliate Sites which contain links to sites I have a business relationship with, or have exchanged links and finally Music sites.
I also hope to present tutorials and links to tutorials soon, all closely in context with this website's topics, aims and objectives.
Below are links to websites of real (ie non-virtual)public galleries. Some show their collections on0line, some give exhibition diary dates. This is not a complete list, but contains most of the major UK museums and some other world famous galleries.
Hayward Gallery, England Located on the South Bank of the Thames in London, this gallery is one of the UK's leading galleries, showing top international touring exhibitions, as well as more localised shows.
ICA, England Located on the Mall just off Trafalgar Square, the Institute for Contemporary Arts is at the cutting edge of challenging modern art, showing conceptual, new media as well as traditional media. Well worth a visit if you're in London. Has it's own cinema showing arthouse movies every day at a reasonable price.
ICA New Media Centre Web based gallery showing some truly cutting edge new media works.
The Museum of Modern Art Located New York, USA. World-class gallery, very comprehensive website.
Rijksmuseum Located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. World-class gallery showing some of the most famous pics on the planet. Combine a weekend blow out in Amsterdam's "attractions" with a bit of culture, and you can't go wrong, or maybe you can...
Tate Gallery The Tate is a collection of galleries recently split into two - The Tate Modern, located on London's South Bank in an old converted Power Station, and the Tate Britain, remaining in the historic building on the North Bank, a bit out from the centre (nearest tube Pimlico) specialising in UK art across the ages, but also carrying high status modern international works. Also has two regional galleries, The Tate Liverpool, the largest modern collection outside London, and Tate St Ives a compact modern gallery, by the sea in this favoured haunt of artists.
Manchester Art Gallery, located in Manchester, England is ane of a number of Regional art galleries, born in the 19th century from the profits and culture of the Industrial Revolution. The gallery collection comprises some of the best art of the Victorian/Edwardian period
The Whitworth Art Gallery, located in Manchester, England another gallery funded from the profits of the Industrial Revolution and now part of the University of Manchester, houses one of the UK's principle collections of textiles and wallpapers, amongst other diverse exhibits.
The Courtauld Institute of Art, located in London, England is the UK's most overlooked gallery - but houses one of the most important Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collections in the world, along with other diverse art works.
Cartwright Hall, located in Bradford, England is a gallery endowed in the Victorian/Edwardian period, when Bradford had a thriving textiles industry. It contains an important permanent collection of British art.
Leeds City Art Gallery located in Leeds, England is a wonderful Victorian gallery with a modern glass and stone extension housing the Henry Moore Foundation and one of the most imporatant collections of 20th century art outside London. Highly recommended.
Sheffield Galleries and Museums Trust is the umberella organisation overseeing numerous galleries in Sheffield, one of the industrial powerhouses of the 19th century, and as such benefiting from Victorian patronage. The websire features the Mappin and Graves Galleries amongst others. Not the Mappin is closed for refuebishment until 2005 - see websire for details.
Nottingam Castle Museum and Ary Gallery is an important Regional Gallery, though the permanent collection is not quite as impressive as Manchester or Leeds. Nevertheless, well worth a visit for a few Victorian gems. Also hosts lots of travelling exhibitions. The grounds are very nice in summer - I recommend you spend an afternoon reading a good book in the grounds if you visit Nottingham, between shooping, and
The Walker Gallery, located in Liverpool England holds one of the finest collections of fine and decorative art in Europe. Superlative collection of pre-Raphaelite art - which the website shows to fine effect.
The Yorkshire Sculpture Park located near Wakefield, England (see webpage for directions) is a marvelous outdoor gallery of some 500 acres showing modern and contemporary 3d work by leading UK and international artists. Marvelous on a frosty winter morning, or a sultry August afternoon! Shows important sculptures by Henry Moore.
The Horniman Museum located in the suburbs on London, England (see webpage for directions ) carries one of the UK's most important collections of ethnographic art and is a truly representative example Victorian kleptomania.
The Victoria and Albert Museum, located in Kensington, London, England is an eclectic mix of art, crafts, ethnography and just about anything which was not nailed down when Victorian and later collectors were on the prowl. You name it, they show it!
The National Gallery, located on Trafalgar Square in the centre of London contains arguably the UK's most important permanent and loaned art collection, including the best collection of Renaissance art otside Italy. Go and be underwhelmed at Van Gogh's vastly overrated Sunflowers, and be awstruck by the monster sized Bathers at Asnieres by Seurat. The website is an e-shop where you can buy prints and fine art reproductions of the most imporatnt works in the collection.
