Pallant House Gallery

The Gallery of Modern Art in the South, Pallant House Gallery is a unique combination of a Queen Anne townhouse and a contemporary building holding one of the best collections of 20th century British art in the world.

The Gallery first opened to the public in 1982 following the original bequest of Dean Walter Hussey.

It was the condition of his bequest that the Queen Anne townhouse (built around 1712) be converted from Council offices into a Gallery of Modern art. Supporters of the proposal were known as the Friends of Pallant House and continue to support the Gallery.

There are three major bequests – the original one made by Dean Walter Hussey, one from Charles Kearley in 1985 and most recently the collection of Professor Sir Colin St John Wilson, best known as the architect of British Library.

The bequests give Pallant House Gallery one of the best collections of Modern British art in the country with works by almost every significant British artist of the 20th century including Peter Blake, Lucian Freud, Henry Moore, John Piper and Graham Sutherland.
