JOHN SELL COTMAN IN NORWICH AND LONDON
Jun 11, 2018 - Sep 29, 2019
A chance to explore the last two decades of Cotman's life through iconic late watercolours and rarely seen drawings.
One of the most original watercolourists of the nineteenth century, John Sell Cotman (1782-1842) is justly celebrated for the ground-breaking watercolours he made after visiting Yorkshire in 1803, 1804 and 1805. His later work, however, is less known. The drawings and watercolours in this exhibition focus on the last two decades of Cotman’s life and introduce an artist who never tired of experimenting and innovating to a wider audience.

LINES OF SIGHT : W G SEBALD'S EAST ANGLIA
May 10, 2019 - Jan 5, 2020
An exhibition celebrating the work of the author W G Sebald on the 75th anniversary of his birth; in collaboration with The University of East Anglia.
This unprecedented exhibition brings together a diverse selection of celebrated artworks, curious objects, archive material and the author’s own, unseen photographs to tell the story behind the creation of one of East Anglia’s most famous literary masterpieces, The Rings of Saturn (1995).
From the mystery of Sir Thomas Browne’s skull to the secret landscapes of the Cold War, from the ghostly vessels of the vanished Herring fleets to intricate pattern books of Norwich silk weavers, this exhibition gathers the threads of Sebald’s enigmatic text to present a uniquely poetic visual portrait of East Anglia that will appeal to both those familiar and new to his work.
