Our #NoelCowardExhibition also invites you into Coward’s private domestic world.

This distinctive Romanesque armchair, dubbed the ‘Hamlet’ chair, was a prominent feature in his London home at 17 Gerald Road, Belgravia, where it enjoyed many celebrated occupants during Noël’s 26-year residence. The famous 'Wings of Time' above became a treasured possession and personal signature.

This week's #OnlineArtExchange theme is cats for #InternationalTigerDay, and no #cat theme can be complete without Louis Wain.

His cats began as charming illustrations, gradually becoming more abstract and frantic, and far more intriguing.

Did you know that Noël Coward was a serious amateur painter? From his early boyhood drawings, he showed an acute directorial eye for fashion, and a dramatist’s sense of the role that clothes can play in revealing character.

So fittingly, Noël's paintings are also a subject of our #NoelCowardExhibition, on display until 23 December.

Our pick of this week's Art UK #OnlineArtExchange in honour of Rembrandt's birthday🎂

We love this humble pencil #selfportrait by Pre-Raphaelite artist Simeon Solomon, noted for his depictions of Jewish life and same-sex desire. Though his career (and life) was tragically cut short by public scandal over his sexuality, his legacy has endured.

Our Story

Guildhall Art Gallery was established in 1886 as 'a Collection of Art Treasures worthy of the capital city'. The original building was destroyed during a severe air raid in 1941. In 1988, when the Gallery was being rebuilt on its original site, Museum of London archaeologists discovered the remains of London’s Roman Amphitheatre. The new building was redesigned to incorporate the underground Roman ruins and opened in 1999. The Guildhall Art Gallery and London’s Roman Amphitheatre are part of the Guildhall Galleries.

Any idea if/when the gallery will be reopening this summer?
I had come up To London In July of last year, July 2019, and, as always, visited this gallery. There was an exhibition relating to the river Thames and a the screening of a video showing the bridges over the t\hames, all illuminated. I watched it over and over, completely under the spell of this screening. The video was named Enchanted River or something like that. . One year on and ithe memory of it still fills me with wonder. If the museum still has a copy of this video, would it be possible for the museum to share it on its pages.Thank you
THOUGHT MIGHT BE OF INTEREST
picked up a leaflet about an event in August on Roman London but don't see anything here about it.
Love this place! So grateful paintings survived the blitz during WW2. My cousin, Charles Gassiot, donated a large amount of work to this museum at his death in 1909.
