London's notorious Grosvenor Gallery was founded by Sir Coutts Lindsay and his wife, Lady Blanche Lindsay, to serve as an alternative to the Royal Academy. Although it existed only from 1877 to 1890, the gallery displayed the works and advanced the careers of many progressive artists, particularly those whose work was ignored by the traditional tastes of the usual exhibition venues. The Lindsays' innovative approach to art, audiences, and exhibition display made the gallery an influential force not only in Victorian art and society but also in the evolution of modern-day museum practice.
