Lady Lever Art Gallery - W & S Owen 1913 - 1922

The gallery is of simple design carried out in Portland stone and its illusion of scaled down hugeness harmonises well with the village. It is the manifestation of Lever's admiration of the classical movement in America and the influence of Professor Reilly and the Liverpool School of Architecture.The subtleties of the four-entrances leading into quadrant re-entrants and the majestic portals are a joy to behold.
