Treasures from the Shipley Art Gallery

About

In 1909 local solicitor Joseph Shipley’s large art collection was bequeathed to the public, together with the funding to build a Gallery in which to display it. This new display showcases highlights from Shipley’s collection, celebrating the richness and diversity of his gift to Gateshead.

Highlights of the Shipley Bequest include a group of outstanding sixteenth and seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish paintings – one of the finest collections in the UK – as well as some important Victorian British paintings.

Since the Shipley Art Gallery opened in 1917 the collection has grown to include a wider range of art practice alongside Shipley’s collection of paintings. Thanks to acquisitions through public and private gifts and donations, the collection now includes sculpture, decorative art – particularly glass, ceramics and metalwork – and a nationally important contemporary craft collection.
