Artist Catherine Bertola has been working with our photographic archives to produce an installation bringing to life the workers of the estate, past and present. Situated in the Galleries, it provides a thought provoking insight into estate life throughout the years and is accompanied by her sound installation using the old servants bells, which are still in place.
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.
