A Guide to Pallant House Gallery

A Guide to Pallant House Gallery

Discover the stories behind Pallant House Gallery, one of Britain’s most distinctive modern art museums.

The guide contains a brief history of the Gallery, from its origins as an 18th century townhouse to the opening of the contemporary wing, designed by Long & Kentish architects in association with Colin St John Wilson in 2006. Available to buy online.

The Gallery's world-class collection of Modern British art is often described as a 'collection of collections' as it is formed from a small number of significant gifts and bequests from generous individuals. The guide outlines key collections given to the Gallery and the people who so generously donated them, as well as an overview of themes which bind the collections together.

Priced at only £5, 'A Guide to Pallant House Gallery' is the perfect addition to your visit and makes for a great present for anyone interested in the Gallery, Chichester or Modern British art.
