Pallant House Gallery in Chichester houses an outstanding collection. It includes works by Andrews, Auerbach, Blake, Bomberg, Caulfield, Freud, Goldsworthy, Hamilton, Hodgkin, Langlands & Bell, Moore, Nicholson, Paolozzi, Piper, Sickert, Sutherland and many more, making it one of the best collections of Modern British Art in Britain.
This beautifully designed and illustrated book, published to mark a new era in the history of Pallant House Gallery, is far more than a book on a collection. It follows themes in twentieth-century British art history, with over 100 colour illustrated examples from this extraordinary collection, resulting in a scholarly and immensely enjoyable appraisal of this period in British Art.
The history and development of the Gallery from its inception in 1982 to the launch of the new Gallery in 2005 is outlined in an introduction by the Director, Stefan van Raay.
