VIEWS OF LONDON AND SHEFFIELD is a tale of two cities seen through the eyes of 20th-century British artists in the collection of Sheffield's excellent Graves Art Gallery. Not, on the face of it, a very inspiring theme for a show, but there are some fine works by Harold Gilman, Stanley Spencer (right), Prunella Clough and Paul Maitland.

Meanwhile, back up north, the Graves Gallery's walls are far from bare. The rest of the collection is well worth a visit and until 5 September there's a small, but very pleasing exhibition of Edouard Vuillard's intimate pastels and drawings.
