Barber Institute of Fine Arts

Recommended
This institute is part of the huge university campus typical of English universities, with its red brick walls but also an extraordinary 100m high bell-tower, named Chamberlain tower.
This collection of furniture and other art objects was created with the help of money bequeathed by Lady Barber (1933) and includes works from Italy, (Bellini, Huardi.) Flanders, (Bruegel le Jeune, Rubens..) England, (Gainsborough, Turner..) and France (Poussin, Watteau and the impressionists).
