Swansea's Glynn Vivian Art Gallery contains traditional and modern art, including sculpture and installations.
The Art Gallery is named after its founder and principal benefactor, Richard Glynn Vivian (1835 - 1910), a member of the famous Vivian family, who made their fortune through the copper smelting industry in Swansea. Richard Glynn Vivian collected art and china from around the world, and donated them to Swansea. The Glynn Vivian Gallery was opened in 1911, sadly, one year after his death.

The permanent collection includes works by Claude Monet, Lucien Pissaro, and the Rouen school of Impressionists. Welsh artists are well represented, including local artists Evan Walters, Alfred Janes and Ceri Richards. The 20th Century is also well represented with modern painting and sculpture by Hepworth, Nicholson and Nash, alongside Welsh artists such as Gwen John, Augustus John and Shani Rhys James.
