What will be your favourite piece in our collections?

Did you know we have over 3,700 items within our collections at Dudmaston? Unfortunately it’s not possible for us to display everything at once so all of the pieces we hold are now available for you to view online. There’s lots to take a look at, botanical paintings; textiles that date back hundreds of years; the modern art collection and more. We all have our favourites, so take a look, what will be yours?

I hope that the visitors to this display of modern art will not allow themselves to be shocked by an art which may seem unusual to them and that, by endeavouring to appreciate a new way of perceiving beauty, they will experience a degree of joy and excitement, which I myself have undergone.

Sir George Labouchere

On tour...

Chic Temps by Jean Dubuffet was considered by Sir George to be his most favourite piece so much so that he had it hung within his study at Dudmaston. So we are sure he would be thrilled by the news that it has been chosen by Tate St. Ives for exhibition in their gallery. So if you take a trip to Cornwall this summer you will also find a little bit of Dudmaston on your travels.

Art group

Our volunteers will help interpret our Modern Art collection

Art is extremely important to us at Dudmaston and we have a team of enthusiastic volunteers who are very informative about the art we hold. Working very closely with our Artist in Residence, last season, they plan to continue her work providing an insight for people into the various pieces of art we hold in the hope of inspiring as many people as possible.
