The Whitechapel Gallery in London's East End was founded in 1901. Designed by Charles Harrison Townsend, the gallery has always been central to Cool Britannia.
The Whitechapel Gallery has showcased some legendary artists such as Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Gilbert & George and Lucian Freud.
Charles Harrison Townsend had a limited budget to work with. He focused much of his attention on the front of the gallery, designing a beautifully detailed arched entrance. Our architectural sculpture is of this gorgeous arched doorway.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frame is made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
Address: Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High Street, London, E1 7QX, England.

|any chance you might have Washinton DC on your to-do list? I would be interested in a cityscape, or even better the stretch of Pennsylvania AVE from 15th ST to 17 ST which encompasses the White House, US Treasury, and several other buildings.|
