Ben Johnson's Liverpool Cityscape 2008 and the World Panorama Series
24 May 2008 - 2 November 2008
Famous city landmarks were reproduced in amazing detail in this huge architectural panorama.
The monumental painting joined Johnson's series of panoramas of Zürich, Jerusalem and Hong Kong and paintings representing the Rookery in Chicago and the Louvre in Paris.
This exhibition also included historical views of Liverpool, demonstrating the long tradition into which the new cityscape fits.
The Liverpool Cityscape is now part of the Walker Art Gallery's permanent collection. From 19 July 2011 it will go on display in the Skylight gallery of the new Museum of Liverpool.
