LONDON, Feb. 26 (People's Daily Online) —— To coincide with its 15th anniversary, Guildhall Art Gallery in London recently underwent a transformational rehang for the first time since the current building opened in 1999.

Many of the works have never been on show before. In the Victorian display alone, 70 percent of works represent a completely new curatorial selection.

The rehang of Victorian works demonstrates how the approach to fine art fundamentally changed in the 19th century. With its focus on everyday subjects such as the home, work, leisure, love, beauty, faith, and imagination, the new Victorian re-hang offers surprising relevance to life in the 21st century and challenges pre-conceptions about Victorian art being 'dated'.
