National Gallery

La National Gallery (ou, en français, la Galerie nationale), fondée en 1824 et achevée en 1838, est un musée situé à Londres et occupant le nord de Trafalgar Square. Elle détient un patrimoine artistique datant de 1250 à 1900, les œuvres plus récentes étant abritées à la Tate Modern. La collection de 2 300 peintures, datant du Moyen Âge à la fin du XIXe siècle, appartient au domaine public britannique et l'accès à la collection principale est gratuit. Seules les expositions temporaires sont soumises à un prix d'entrée. La Gallery est un organisme public non-départemental. Les débuts de la National Gallery furent modestes, à la différence du Louvre à Paris ou du Prado à Madrid, car la collection ne fut pas fondée par la nationalisation d'œuvres d'art appartenant à la famille royale ou à des nobles. L'essor de la Gallery débuta avec l'achat de 38 peintures au banquier John Julius Angerstein en 1824. La Gallery fut ensuite conçue par ses premiers directeurs, en particulier Sir Charles Lock Eastlake, et ses collections ont été enrichies par des donataires privés pour les deux tiers des œuvres. La National Gallery conserve quelques-uns des plus beaux tableaux du monde, et si l'on peut y admirer quelques œuvres nationales (William Turner, John Constable, Thomas Gainsborough), l'essentiel est constitué de tableaux étrangers qui recouvrent toute l'histoire de l'art du Moyen Âge à la fin du XIXe siècle, avec des pièces maîtresses de : Fra Angelico ; Jacopo Bassano ; Giovanni Bellini ; Sandro Botticelli ; Paul Cézanne ; John Constable ; Gonzales Coques ; Piero di Cosimo ; Lucas Cranach l'Ancien ; Piero della Francesca ; Frans Hals ; Hans Holbein le Jeune : Les Ambassadeurs ; Dominique Ingres ; Gustav Klimt ; Lorenzo Lotto ; Édouard Manet ; Andrea Mantegna ; Hans Memling ; Michel Ange ; Claude Monet ; Le Pérugin ; Camille Pissarro ; Giambattista Pittoni ; Nicolas Poussin ; Raphaël ; Rembrandt ; Auguste Renoir ; Pierre-Paul Rubens ; Georges Seurat Giovanni Battista Tiepolo ; J.M.W. Turner ; Paolo Ucello ; Vincent van Gogh ; Jan van Eyck ; Rogier van der Weyden ; Antoine Van Dyck ; Diego Velázquez ; Johannes Vermeer ; Paul Véronèse ; Léonard de Vinci ; Canaletto ; Francisco de Zurbarán.

London Eye

The London Eye, or the Millennium Wheel, is a cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. It is Europe's tallest cantilevered observation wheel, and is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over 3 million visitors annually, and has made many appearances in popular culture. The structure is 135 metres (443 ft) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 120 metres (394 ft). When it opened to the public in 2000 it was the world's tallest Ferris wheel. The London Eye used to offer the highest public viewing point in London until it was superseded by the 245-metre-high (804 ft) observation deck on the 72nd floor of The Shard, which opened to the public on 1 February 2013. The London Eye adjoins the western end of Jubilee Gardens (previously the site of the former Dome of Discovery), on the South Bank of the River Thames between Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge beside County Hall, in the London Borough of Lambeth. In March 2020 the London Eye celebrated its 20th birthday by turning its pods into experiences in partnership with its sponsor lastminute.com. The special experiences included a pub in a capsule, a west end theatre pod and a garden party with flower arrangements to represent the eight London Royal parks.
