The gallery has some wonderful paintings from the late C19th and C20th. In addition there is good information on the social and political settings in which the works were produced. We found this provision of context really informed, educated and made the visit more valuable.

If you are visiting city and it is rain day, it is best to go for this gallery or some of the museums. There is also one nice coffee shop there.

Seemed that the art here is much more Contemporary that Modern. We didn't really care for the art. Its a personal opinion.
