NGS of Modern Art

Enter this magnificent building (Modern Two, as it’s called) and be humbled by its origins, a marked contrast to the horrific headlines here about Jimmy Savile, a media personality and charity fundraiser who was posthumously revealed to be a sexual predator.

The building was called the Dean Orphan Hospital, built by Thomas Hamilton, 1833. (Please note, view above is not the Modern Two; it’s a panorama from our walk to the art gallery.)
