Exhibition: Artists of East Anglia

Discover a collection inspired by East Anglia.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

During his life, Lord Fairhaven collected and commissioned the work of several East Anglian artists: from English landscape paintings by Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable, to contemporary depictions of the estate by Leonard Squirrell and Edward Seago. Lord Fairhaven used his collection to root himself, his title, and his estate into the wider cultural and social backdrop of the time, using art to express this public identity. Explore the exhibition trail in the House to unlock the connections Anglesey Abbey has with East Anglia in the collection.
