1910 and a successful German architect, Thomas, marries an up-and-coming British artist, Irene.  This is the story of their lives and families through the next three generations and so the conflict in Europe from both sides, for poor Irene belongs to neither.  We get the Jewish and homosexual problem, the turmoil and wretched heartache, the danger and tragedy in a long, eventful and beautifully written tale, a very fine book indeed. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

The People's Galleries

The People's Galleries

Author: Giles Waterfield Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/08/2015

This innovative history of British art museums begins in the early 19th century. The National Gallery and the South Kensington Museum (now the Victoria and Albert Museum) in London may have been at the center of activity, but museums in cities such as Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, and Nottingham were immensely popular and attracted enthusiastic audiences. The People's Galleries traces the rise of art museums in Britain through World War I, focusing on the phenomenon of municipal galleries. This richly illustrated book argues that these regional museums represented a new type of institution: an art gallery for a working-class audience, appropriate for the rapidly expanding cities and shaped by liberal ideals. As their broad appeal weakened with the new century, they adapted and became more conventional. Using a wide range of sources, the book studies the patrons and the publics, the collecting policies, the temporary exhibitions, and the architecture of these institutions, as well as the complex range of reasons for their foundation.
