Estate life

A new exhibition is coming to Dudmaston. Over the winter artist Catherine Bertola will be working with our photographic archives to produce an installation bringing to life the workers of the estate, past and present. This will be situated in the Old Kitchen for visitors to see when we re-open in March and is sure to provide a fascinating insight into estate life throughout the years.

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.
