Southampton City Art Gallery – Civic Centre, Commercial Road, Southampton UK
If you have an extra couple of hours, take a drive southwest of London to Southampton where you can view Frank Bernard Dicksee’s 1884 painting of Romeo and Juliet at the Southampton City Art Gallery. A poll conducted in 2011 found that 71% of 2,030 Britons thought this piece was the most romantic work of art currently on display in UK museums and galleries.
The scene depicts a kiss between the two young lovers after their one night together and before their tragic and untimely deaths. One critic has said the painting perfectly conveys the tenderness and passion of this poignant moment when Romeo says, ‘Farewell, farewell! One kiss, and I’ll descend.’
