Leeds Art Gallery

What I didn't mention in my last post is my disinterest in surrealism in general, which is why my visit to Leeds gallery was so disappointing after enduring it once already in Manchester. Leeds' surrealism collection is much more extensive and representative of the whole genre though, it has to be said.
The curation of the works is also very admirable and impressive, with groups being made through theme, chronology or form, making the viewing of the art much more ordered and clear (ironically)
This shrewd organisation of art means that it takes longer to fall victim to gallery fatigue, and the whole visit is much more relaxing and enjoyable.
