With a superb display of British art and some outstanding Italian and Flemish works, the Walker maintains its reputation as one of the best British art collections outside London. Don't miss the unrivaled collection of paintings by 18th-century Liverpudlian equestrian artist George Stubbs, and works by J.M.W. Turner, John Constable, Sir Edwin Henry Landseer, and the Pre-Raphaelites. Modern artists are included, too; on display is one of David Hockney's typically Californian
pool scenes. Other excellent exhibits showcase china, silver, and furniture that once adorned the mansions of Liverpool's industrial barons. The Tea Room holds center stage in the airy museum lobby.
