We greatly enjoyed our visit to this civic art gallery . It is part of a wonderful civic building designed by Ernest Berry Webber and this part finished in 1939 . We were moved to first of all read the memorial inside to the right to those art students killed in a bombing in 1940 . The gallery itself is light and airy with just a few rooms but beautifully thought out . Some stunning works on display , modern , old masters and pre-raphaelites . One room just with Burne -jones studies for a commission. We also saw a very interesting exhibition of the history , members and art works of the Artists Rifles . Many of the works from the First World War were very moving and horrifying e.g. By Paul Nash . Great gallery -small but perfectly formed with a nice shop - note there is an excellent cafe next door in the sea city museum -you don't have to pay to enter . Gallery hours 10-3 so a bit unexpectedly short . Worth multiple visits .
