Was really impressed. My favourite exhibits were the marble sculptures and the paintings. There’s also a great earthenware sculpture of a peacock. Would like to return to see more of the gallery.

A visit to the Walker is a must for anyone who likes intense painting. A wondrous display awaits. Additionally the gallery has an exemplary collection of sculptures in the best Greek tradition.
