Gallery

 

(1) A long, covered, well-lit space where usually one of the long walls is replaced by columns or posts and sometimes also by a balustrade. In the first half of the 16th century, especially during the baroque period, a new type of gallery was developed in European palace architecture: a spacious hall with a succession of large windows on one long wall. Beginning in the 17th century, such galleries contained the art collections of the palace owners. Later, art museums as well as their departments came to be called galleries. In modern architecture the gallery is an important functional element of gallery houses.

(2) An upper tier of a theater.

(3) Figuratively in Russian, a long row, a file (for instance, a galley of set type in Russian is called a galereia).
