Usher Gallery Art Galleries
Set in the beautiful grounds of the Temple Gardens, the Gallery houses an exquisite collection of Fine and Decorative arts.
"It has long been my desire and ambition to bequeath a considerable proportion of my life's work in art to Lincoln, and I hope that it might form the nucleus of an art gallery and museum worthy of the city. " James Ward Usher (1845-1921) was a successful entrepreneur and a devoted collector of decorative art.
The original Usher bequest of clocks and watches, porcelain, silver, enamels, miniatures and coins remains the core of the Usher Gallery's permanent collection, with a selection of pieces still displayed in the original cases. However, the collection has expanded and continues to grow, encompassing a wide range of Fine and Decorative Art, from Neo-Classical sculpture to contemporary portraiture and crafts. The permanent collection is supplemented by generous loans and exchanges with other museums and private collections.
