Work in Focus: JG Graves

This new display celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of John George Graves, one of Sheffield’s great philanthropists.

Graves famously funded the development of the iconic Central Library and Graves Gallery building and donated parkland, playgrounds and gardens to the city. A passionate art collector, he also gifted nearly 700 paintings to Sheffield’s collection.

Please note - this is a small display rather than a full exhibition.
