Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water

Pallant House Gallery, Chichester
12 November 2022 - 23 April 2023

Take a journey through the South Downs as perceived by artists from the 19th century to the present day.

Inspired by the rolling hills and chalk cliff coastline, artists have long tried to encapsulate the beauty of the landscape of Sussex. The Pallant House Gallery’s collection highlights paintings from the Bloomsbury group’s Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell who resided at Charleston in Firle, and works by JMW Turner who returned to Petworth House year after year in the early-19th century, along with contemporaries such as Constable and Leslie. It also features works by Ivon Hitchens, Eric Ravilious and Edward Burra, as well as contemporary artists working in the area today.

See Sussex in a whole new light through sculpture, prints, paintings and digital works that bring this exhibition right up to date, showing that this part of the country has not lost its allure for those with an artistic eye.
