Question Time

These questions are about an oil painting called Family of E. L. Lee (1736) by the artist Joseph Highmore (1692 – 1780). It is part of Wolverhampton Art Gallery’s permanent collection and is on currently on display in our Georgian room. You might have seen it when you have visited the gallery? The picture is important because it connects to the history of the city.

These questions are about and oil painting call Allegory of Wisdom and Science (front piece for the Encyclopaedia Brittannica) by the artist  James Miller (1714-1837) showing a female showing a large manuscript to a group of small children. They are surrounded by many cultural and scientific objects.
