Overview of collections

The original Walter Hussey Bequest consists of c.130 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures and
ceramics, mostly Modern British (c. 1920-1965) and Neo-Romantic, although there is a significant
element of earlier pieces. This is complimented by the later acquisition of similar Modern works in the Charles Kearley Collection, the Norman Lucas Bequest, the Colin St. John Wilson Collection, the entire contents of the North London studio of Hans Feibusch, the Geoffrey Freeman Collection of Bow Porcelain, the Amberley Castle Panels (a set of eight highly important painted panels depicting the Heroines of Antiquity by Lambert Barnard). There are also fine antique furniture, paintings, textiles and other items acquired by the Trust and Friends group and an extensive library and archive.

Overview of how collections are displayed

The Gallery's Modern Art Collections of paintings, drawings, graphics and sculpture are presented in a historic setting where a series of seven rooms have been authentically restored and furnished to the various different periods of the house's occupation.
An additional purpose-built space, adjacent to the present house is currently being developed.
