Architecture of London brings together artworks from the 17th century to the present day to illustrate how London’s ever-changing cityscape has inspired visiting and resident artists over four centuries. The exhibition will feature 80 works by over 60 artists, drawing from the Guildhall Art Gallery's extensive collection to examine the rich diversity of London’s buildings and its varied portrayal by artists.
The exhibition will also feature important loans from other major British collections and a number of private collections, including masterpieces by renowned and emerging artists, such as Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach and Catherine Yass.
Visitors will see the city from a wide range of viewpoints, including artists’ windows, vast panoramas, close-ups, and street views.
Architecture of London celebrates all of London’s wide-ranging architecture - from tower blocks to suburban homes, the iconic, to the non-descript. The exhibition will offer visitors a unique insight into London’s ever-evolving topography through the eyes of artists who have been, and still are, captivated by the city.
The Guildhall Art Gallery is open: 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday, 12-4pm Sunday
