Small but perfectly formed, you will find one of the finest collections of impressionist painting in Britain. The collection is small and accessible,as perfect for introducing children to painting style and genre as it is to the serious student. The Seurats are excellent, particularly a collection of four small sketches of the banks of the Seine. Take you children, they can learn to enjoy art here without becoming bored or confused by seeing too much at once, Then take them to the excellent and friendly cafe in the basement (where I also saw a member of staff being extremely helpful to a wheelchair bound art lover) and let them enjoy the delicious cakes. Who knows, who may be responsible for creating a lifelong interest in art and this is a good place to start.
