Art

The Museum has over 4,000 paintings, prints and drawings. These represent local personalities, topographical scenes, special events and everyday life. Included in the collection are five watercolours by J M W Turner, a pencil drawing by John Constable and works by Augustus John and Rex Whistler. Please note that three of our Turner watercolours are not on display. This is because they are resting in storage having returned from exhibition in France.
