Guildhall Art Gallery is located in the heart of the City of London and is home to the City of London Corporation's art collection.Established in the late 19th century as a collection of art treasures worthy of the capital city, Guildhall Art Gallery soon lived up to this ambition, with exhibitions that featured world famous masterpieces and works by some great artists. The wide-ranging collection of 4,500 works, including over 1,300 oil paintings, dates from 1670 to the present day. Particularly strong in Victorian material, with a number of choice Pre-Raphaelite items, the collection also houses important ceremonial and topographical paintings.
