Romans and Romantics – The Guildhall Art Gallery
This gallery sits adjacent to the Guildhall and is one of London’s lesser known, but delightful, galleries. The City of London has been commissioning and acquiring art for nearly 350 years and now owns a vast and diverse collection. We will look at paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries as well as the sparkling Victorian collection and some impressive contemporary works. We finish this virtual tour with a trip beneath the building to the atmospheric Roman amphitheatre which was discovered by chance in the 1980s.
