The Derek Hill Collection 

Mottisfont houses a permanent collection of 20th-century art, amassed by the artist Derek Hill. This inspiring collection includes artists such as L.S. Lowry, Barbara Hepworth and Graham Sutherland. You can see many of these works in the Morning Room. There are also smaller, focused displays in the West Corridor, where this year we’re highlighting works by the St Ives School.
