St. Paul (Unknown artist, Spanish, Catalan School). This is the oldest painting in the Gallery. Painted on wood and using gold leaf it is a fine example of Christian art.

Watchful Eyes by J.W. Godward (English 1861-1922). The Gallery has a large collection of Victorian paintings. This shows the contemporary fascination with classicism and the current taste for the realistic depiction of surfaces such as marble. The round format gives it a restful air.

Tall, Average, Petite by Allen Jones. A contemporary British artist who rose to fame during the sixties. This is part of his well-known series of Stage paintings where the larger-than-life-size canvas draws the viewer into the performance.
