Wolverhampton Art Gallery (detail) Men Only
Wolverhampton Art Gallery (detail) Men Only
The gallery was opened in 1884. As the first floor has no windows (so that there is more wall space inside for hanging pictures) there was space on the outside for some attractive and appropriate carved masonry. Here on the front of the building, men are seen pursuing suitably manly artistic activities. The ladies "do their more delicate work" on the other panel. (On the side of the building, sculptured scenes of industrial activity are shown.)
