Gallery: Lady Lever Art Gallery

21 October 2014

The Lady Lever Art Gallery has received £1.2 million backing from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to go towards a redisplay of more than 1,500 items of fine and decorative art. The collection, amassed by William Hesketh Lever, includes highlights such as a Napoleon death mask, exquisite Chinese porcelain and world-renowned Wedgwood jasperware. The HLF grant will also go towards restoring the galleries in the South End of the Lady Lever to their former Edwardian glory. The revamp encompasses 500 square metres of gallery space – more than a quarter of the venue. Click on any image to open the slideshow…
