A new exhibition at Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight, Wirral, will present a different perspective on British landscape art, focusing on work by women artists. Another View: Landscapes by Women Artists (20 April to 18 August 2024) will also showcase paintings by Elizabeth Campbell (1783-1861) which have recently been acquired by National Museums Liverpool, entering a public collection for the first time.

The exhibition includes around 40 works dating from the early 1800s to the 1980s. The Campbells will feature alongside work by artists such as Vanessa Bell (1879-1961), Ingrid Pollard (b. 1953) and Dame Ethel Walker (1861-1951). Another View considers how artists have used their practice to explore the issues of their day, asking questions about class, gender, politics, and more through their depictions of landscape.

Campbell’s paintings recount her travels in Europe after the Napoleonic Wars. An adventurer, she travelled extensively with her daughter Thomasina, sketching the landscapes they saw. Campbell was one of the first women to cross a difficult glacier path on Mont Blanc. Seven of her energetic watercolours have entered the Walker Art Gallery’s collection, with the exhibition providing a first viewing.

      I could have spent much longer here and will certainly be back again when I get the chance. First of all, it’s a lovely building in itself. Secondly, there’s a very interesting mix of fine art... Read full review

      I really liked the Lady Lever Art Museum. I visited while travelling from Chester to Liverpool and it was an easy walk from Bebington train station. The Main Gallery is the centrepiece, with some... Read full review
