The Rings of Saturn–with its curious archive of photographs–records a walking tour of the eastern coast of England. A few of the things which cross the path and mind of its narrator (who both is and is not Sebald) are lonely eccentrics, Sir Thomas Browne’s skull, a matchstick model of the Temple of Jerusalem, recession-hit seaside towns, wooded hills, Joseph Conrad, Rembrandt’s “Anatomy Lesson”, the natural history of the herring, the massive bombings of WWII, the dowager Empress Tzu Hsi, and the silk industry in Norwich.


Ticket price includes refreshments. Non-Friends may access the Gallery at the full entrance price.
Art Book Club books are available in the Pallant Bookshop at 20% discount to attendees.
