What were these boys whispering about.... See the original in our exhibition Seen and Heard - they certainly were by the artist, Thomas Webster.

Something for the weekend - see Sir John Everett Millais' 'Lorenzo and Isabella' in the Visions and Visionaries exhibition. This artwork is a stunning example of a new pre-Raphaelite style where fable and realism merge

Day 12 – Merry Christmas. Our final painting is this happy scene by Thomas Webster. A group of children play on a make-shift see-saw while their mother collects wood for the fire. Can you spot the little boy’s Santa hat?

Well done if you guessed correctly, this poignant night scene by William Macready is set on the northern end of Blackfriars Bridge. It depicts a crossing sweeper pausing for food and a flower girl selling baskets of roses and carnations.

Day 10 – Today’s image is ‘Try this Pair’ by Frederick Daniel Hardy. While this might look like a surprise visit from Father Christmas, it’s actually a pedlar selling spectacles to a cosy-looking Victorian Family - a common sight in village homes.

Well done if you guessed right! This painting by George Elgar Hicks is of the chaotic rush to catch the last post at the General Post Office in St Martin's-le-Grand. Last minute Christmas gifts come to mind…

Day 8 – If you zoom in closely you can see that the children are playing with a tiny kitten in this William Collins piece. In the Victorian era pets became more common, and animals became playmates for the children.

Day 7 – Say hello to John, Cecil and Everard Baring. On their holidays at the seaside, these three are dressed up as sailors and ready to play. They also happen to be ancestors of Princess Diana.
