Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum
This architecturally beautiful house turned museum holds a fascinating collection of art and sculpture assembled by the husband and wife Victorian collectors Annie and Merton Russell-Cotes. The collection is of international status and reflects the Victorian fascination with world cultures. One of the other most interesting features of the collection is the quantity of beautiful paintings both depicting women and by women.
The Museum also has regular exhibitions. The current exhibition Food for Thought investigates some of the sensory pleasures and pains of our relationship with food. It features some fascinating archive footage on loan from the Imperial War Museum alongside a selection of art from the collection and some contemporary art and inspiring sculpture.
You can still catch Food for Thought until the 30th of April.
