Guildhall Art gallery and Roman Amphitheater in London


The Guildhall Art Gallery ⇒ is free to enter and is right beside Guildhall ⇐ .  Beneath are the remains of a Roman Amphitheater (AD 70) made more atmospheric by illuminated competitors.  The gallery houses a moderate size collection of quite impressive art including some pre-Raphaelite works.


Lord Mayor Sir Francis Wyatt Truscot by Charles Bell Birch



The Wounded Cavalier by William Shakespeare Burton



La Ghirlandata by Dante Gabriel Rossetti



Fair St George by John Gilbert



The Defeat of the Floating Batteries at Gibraltar (painted) by John Singleton Copley

The painting is so large that it occupies two floors. I’m sure that’s Stephen Fry on the horse.




Demolition of London Bridge by J.W.S



Music Lesson by Frederic Leighton



Ninth of November by William Logsdail



The Woodmans Daughter by John Everett Millais

Inspired by a tragic poem with the same title by Coventry Patmore.
