Exhibitions at Mottisfont

Mottisfont's last owner, Maud Russell, was a lover of art. We continue those passions today with changing exhibitions in a spacious art gallery.

Our gallery

Maud Russell made Mottisfont into a vibrant hub of artistic activity from the 1930s onwards. She invited many Modern British artists, critics and designers for long weekends of croquet and creative conversation. We continue these artistic traditions today, with changing exhibitions throughout the year and a permanent display of 20th-century artworks.

Artist and collector Derek Hill was a frequent visitor. He honoured his long friendship with the Russells by leaving a substantial collection of 20th-century art to us, on display throughout the house.

For anyone unable to access the upstairs gallery, where we hold our changing exhibitions, we have digital versions of exhibitions on iPads which are available on lower levels.
