Pallent House Gallery 1

This post is split into two because otherwise it would be a very long post!

Pallent House is a fantastic gallery in Chichester. It is currently showing a retrospective of Edwardo Paolozzi’s work (on till 13th October 2013) along with the permanent collection.

Along with the current exhibition (in the new part of the gallery) there is also the permanent collection housed in the old house. It is great space, wondering round this beautiful building full with art curated into groups by collector, influence or inspiration. There are models of previous exhibitions, and plans, ceramics, furnature (my favourite being Nina Saunder’s “Autumn Flowers“, a surrealist chair), paintings, a dress/coat made of balloons, photographs and more, all housed in a Grade 1 listed Queen Anne town house (1712)’ with views of the cathedral.

This space is definitely worth a visit! Check out their website for what’s on.

“Pallant House Gallery is home to one of the best collections of Modern British art in the UK, with works by Henry Moore, Walter Sickert, Ben Nicholson, Eduardo Paolozzi and Peter Blake.

The core of this ‘collection of collections’ is Modern British art but other artworks figure such at the Bow Porcelain of the Geoffrey Freeman Collection. Each group of works has been formed by different collectors and different impulses and lends its own character to the collection, making the experience of Pallant House Gallery engaging, insightful and unique.”
