Extraordinary Art

The East has inspired artists for centuries, and is still the place to find the most innovative and creative art.

Norwich Castle celebrates the achievements of a great British hero in Nelson & Norfolk; through art, trophies of war and personal possessions. Later in the year Rembrandt: Lightening the Darkness explores Rembrandt's astonishing ability to breathe life into his subjects using only monochrome media.

The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts showcases Paul Nash, exploring the artist's role in the development of modern British art. This is followed by The Russian Season: Fabergé and Radical Russia, marking the anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

Gainsborough and Constable both called Suffolk home and the new Landscape of Constable and Gainsborough Trail takes you to ten locations of historic importance, featuring the land that inspired them.

This summer Houghton Hall displays a superb collection of new Richard Long site-specific works, EARTH SKY. Gods of Sport at Newmarket's recently opened National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art features some of sport's most iconic figures.
