Herbert Art Gallery, Coventry

The Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry has a good permanent collection of historical and contemporary art and sculpture. Also currently showing is the work of George Shaw, the Turner Prize nominated artist, who paints his childhood haunts in Tile Hill using Humbrol enamel paint.
It's always worth visiting the Cathedral if you are in Coventry. Many well known 20th century artists contributed to it's construction, including John Piper, Jacob Epstein and Graham Sutherland.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
