About

Victorian Treasures brings together more than 60 outstanding paintings and watercolours from the art collections of the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Sudley House and the Walker Art Gallery.

Victorian Treasures explores the work of leading 19th-century classical artists such as Frederic Leighton, Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Edward John Poynter. It also showcases work from pioneering Pre-Raphaelite artists including John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt.

A number of rarely-seen watercolours by artists including Simeon Solomon, Helen Allingham, Ford Madox Brown and Kate Greenaway will be on show, as well as Edward Burne-Jones’ monumental watercolour Sponsa de Libano, which stands at more than three metres high.

The exhibition looks at the full breadth of Victorian art by exploring four key themes: Victorian romantics; painters of the Ancient World; the outside world; and late 19th century symbolists.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

The Walker is a short walk from Liverpool Lime Street station. Leave the station via the exit closest to the ticket office turning left along Lime Street, past the Empire Theatre. Head towards the fountain via the pedestrian crossing. The Walker Art Gallery is the second building along, directly behind the fountain.

The nearest local line train station is Liverpool Lime Street lower level, however this is only served by Wirral Line trains.

The Walker is within walking distance of the bus stations at Queen Square and the Paradise Street Interchange.

From Queen Square: keep the Queen Square Centre and The Royal Court Theatre on your right and walk towards St George's Hall and the adjoining gardens. Cross at the pedestrian lights, turn left and walk through the gardens, keeping the back of St George's Hall to your right. As you leave the gardens you will see a fountain across to your right. The fountain is directly in front of the gallery.

From Paradise Street: leave the bus station by the eastern exit (the end furthest from the river and the Albert Dock) and before you reach the traffic lights go left through a pedestrianised shopping area (by John Lewis). Pass several shops, cross the junction with Lord/Church Street and progress along Whitechapel. Take the pavement on the right side of the road, passing a taxi rank, bus station and several pubs. Cross the road towards St Johns Gardens, and keeping the gardens on your right follow the path round to the right. Go past World Museum Liverpool and the gallery is at the top of the road on the left.
