Visit to Lady Lever Art Gallery- Port Sunlight.

Yesterday I visited the Lady Lever art gallery (there was also a Matisse exhibition on which I was very happy about).

Information about the Lady Lever Art Gallery.

The Lady Lever Art Gallery is regarded as one of the finest art galleries in Europe. It’s located in model village, Port Sunlight in Wirral, a place rich in architectural charm. 

The houses are simply gorgeous! I have visited here a few times as my friend lives locally. *Picture taken by me.
This is the statue outside the Lady lever art gallery- picture taken by me.
I love these types of houses!
I love the roof!

The gallery was founded by William Hesketh Lever (1851-1925) and is dedicated to his wife Elizabeth, Lady Lever. Lever wanted to share his collections with the public and the works on display at the gallery have been personally selected. 

Inside the gallery, visitors will find the best of Lever’s personal art collection and the finest collection of Wedgwood jasperware anywhere in the world. The Pre-Raphaelite painting collection is internationally renowned and features works by Millais, Rossetti, Burne-Jones and Holman Hunt. 

Here are the pictures I took of the exhibits:

A gorgeous fireplace.
This was the top of the same fireplace above! I love the Angel’s!
This was the same room. I loved all the walls, such incredible detail in the entire room.
Me in the room. I love a gorgeous mirror and fireplace.
This is Lady Lever (William Lever’s wife).
This is Willaim Lever who founded the gallery.
My mum loved this one. It looked like a scene from heaven Arch angel Michael on a chariot.
This gorgeous vanity cabinet was in the Japanese section.
Another gorgeous mirror- this was in the Japanese section also.
I loved this buddha (or what I thought looked like a buddha) candle holder.
I simply had to take a picture of this beautiful little girl!
I loved this portrait of this beautiful and elegant lady!
Another beautiful mirror!!
This is Pan, in Greek mythology is part man, part goat. was the god of wild groves, shepherds, and flocks. Born in Arcadia to Hermes and a Dryad, Pan was a precocious child whose goat’s feet and horned head delighted gods, but startled mortals.
For most of the time, the great god was both an amusing and amiable presence – but he loved his naps even more than he loved his nymphs; which explains why the Ancient Greeks believed it was fairly dangerous to disturb them. Once upset, Pan was known to be able to let out an angry, blood-curdling shout which inspired a sudden sensation of fear and anxiety in everyone unfortunate enough to hear it.
Pan possessed enormous strength. He could also run for long periods of time and was impervious to injury. He could transform objects into different forms and was able to teleport himself from Earth to Mount Olympus and back. He is depicted as very shrewd with a wonderful sense of humor.

Check out the next post for the Matisse exhibition.

I hope you enjoyed my photos.
