The Lady Lever Art Gallery
Port Sunlight, Merseyside, England
Dedicated to the Memory of his Wife
Elizabeth Ellen Hulme, 1850 - 1913
Port Sunlight is one of the most charming towns in all of England, a nearly perfect early twentieth century model village, designed by Lord Lever to accomodate the employees of his soap manufacturing company, Lever Brothers (now Unilever). The town's premier feature is the jewel - like Lady Lever Gallery, containing one of the loveliest collections of fine and decorative arts in the UK. You can wander through small beautiful rooms of furniture, Wedgwood, and Chinese porcelain; then into the large open gallery of British 18th and 19th century paintings, including a breath-taking assortment of pre-Raphaelite works by Alma-Tadema, Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt, Frederic Leighton, and my favorite -- in a peacefully sequestered stairwell: Cordelia's Portion, by Ford Madox Brown.
