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.

The best gallery that I have been to outside of London. The sculpture gallery was breathtaking, I have never seen so many together in one place before. We spent about 3 hours in the gallery.
