News of the recent award of Heritage Lottery Funds to the Lady Lever Gallery at Port Sunlight in Liverpool is most welcome to those of us who have had the privilege of visiting that wonderful gallery. The article says it's the world's greatest collection of jasperware, which surprised me. I can't dispute it because I do not know that statistic, but I believe other repositories likely have equally extensive collections of jasperware. The most outstanding memory I have from my visit there were the very large oval Queensware plaques hand painted by George Stubbs. They grace the walls of one of the galleries and it was amazing to stand in front of them and take in the beauty of Stubbs' incredible ability to portray the majestic horses. The other amazing thing is that I am probably the only Beatles fan who went to Liverpool and saw NO Beatles sites!!!
Enjoy this article and the photos!
