Sussex Showcase features over 2000 years of great art in the county, from the beautifully preserved mosaics at Bignor and Fishborne, and medieval frescoes in tiny South Downs churches, to the colourful paintings of Charleston-based artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. The book shows the influence of Sussex on two of Britain’s greatest artists, John Constable and J. M. W. Turner, and considers the impact of the County on famous twentieth-century painters like Paul Nash and Eric Ravilious.
