The Lord Provost looks forward to welcoming WCDC2019 at the Civic Reception and Welcome on Sunday 23 June 2019 at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum in the Victoria Gallery.
The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum has been beautifully renovated to re-create the original galleries, combining state of the art facilities with Nationally Recognised Collections.
The reception will take place in the Victoria Gallery, located on the first floor, with its original curved red walls, vaulted glass ceiling, ornamental plasterwork and varnished dados create an impressive setting for the City’s nationally important collection of historic oil paintings.
Highlights include the portrait of George Paterson by Henry Raeburn, the earliest painting of a football match – ‘The Village Ba’ Game’ by Alexander Carse, Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s Pre-Raphaelite masterpiece ‘Dante’s Dream on the Day of the Death of Beatrice’ and work by the Glasgow Boys.
