The Big City: London painted on a grand scale

Mon-Sun: 10:30-4pm

'The Big City: London painted on a grand scale' is the new exhibition at Guildhall Art Gallery opening on 10 February. The display celebrates monumental painters of the capital and showcases some of the largest paintings in the Gallery’s collection.

Guildhall Art Gallery is home to one of the most extensive collections of London paintings in the world and hosts one of the largest oil paintings on display in the UK - John Singleton Copley’s 'Defeat of the Floating Batteries at Gibraltar' (1783–1791).

This inspiring exhibition includes many pieces not normally on public display, including rarely-seen works by Frank O. Salisbury, Terence Cuneo and David Hepher.
