Grosvenor Gallery, 135-37 New Bond St., London

The gallery was founded in Bond Street, London, by Sir Coutts Lindsay and Blanche Lindsay. The Grosvenor displayed work by artists from outside the British mainstream art, including Edward Burne-Jones and Walter Crane. In 1877, John Ruskin visited the gallery to see work by Burne-Jones. James McNeill Whistler’s work was also on display, and Ruskin’s review led to the famous libel case of Ruskin and Whistler. Related BRANCH Article: Julie Codell, “On the Grosvenor Gallery, 1877-90”
