Reflected even in its architecture; a combination of a Grade I listed townhouse dating back to 1712 and a contemporary wing added in 2006, Pallant House Gallery creates a perfect contrast between Modern British Art and its central location in the old historic city of Chichester. Pallant House is home to some of the best works of Modern British Art housing both temporary and permanent exhibitions ranging from Post-Impressionist works by Walter Sickert, to Surrealist pieces by John Armstrong and Eileen Agar, to Peter Blake’s Pop Art. In addition to the permanent collection and exhibitions, Pallant House offers a varied programme of workshops, talks and events.
With a fine permanent collection of British modern art, a restaurant that’s perfect for a posh lunch and ace art books for sale in the shop, Pallant House is the perfect place to lose a few leisurely hours. While in Chichester, check out paintings by Graham Sutherland and John Piper, and a stained-glass window by Marc Chagall in what is perhaps the most modernism-friendly cathedral in the country.
