Very nice collection. Free admission, with boxes for donations. I was very drawn to a painting "The Marriage" featuring a forlorn woman watching the celebration as her heart is breaking.

What a fabulous location, grand architecture and surroundings. Most impressed by the Hockney exhibition and the range of other artists on display. The 100 year celebration of women getting the vote is also worth a look. Lovely food in the cafe near the lake too!
