Join us on Tuesday 12th December at 5:30pm for drinks and a book signing event, followed by Peter Beckingham’s talk at Newlands House Gallery, following his sold out talk at Petworth Literary Festival last month.

Lodsworth-based Peter Beckingham steers us through 2000 years of great art in the county, from the beautifully preserved mosaics at Bignor and Fishborne and Medieval frescoes in tiny South Downs churches, to the colourful paintings of Charlestonbased artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. Also describing the infuence of Sussex on two of Britain’s greatest artists, Constable and Turner, Peter Beckingham also considers the impact of the county on famous 20th century painters such as Paul Nash and Eric Ravilious. An essential insight for any resident or visitor interested in the county’s major contribution to British art.

“a gem, well – researched, beautifully illustrated and hugely informative”
