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.
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.
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.
We continue these artistic traditions today, with changing exhibitions throughout the year.
For anyone unable to access the upstairs gallery, we have digital versions of exhibitions on iPads which are available on lower levels.
