GLYN PHILPOT: FLESH AND SPIRIT

Discover the work of Glyn Philpot, the sought-after society portraitist who shook off convention to embrace modernism. The first major exhibition in almost 40 years, bringing together over 80 paintings, drawings and sculptures, it charts the artist’s development from society portraits to a radically modernist style in the 1930s.

Pallant House Gallery is one of Britain’s most distinctive modern art museums. It tells the story of British art from 1900 to now through original exhibitions and a world-class collection. In its 20 galleries, housed in an historic Queen Anne townhouse with a striking contemporary extension, you can see the work of Lucian Freud, Barbara Hepworth, John Piper, Eduardo Paolozzi and many more greats from the history of modern art.

Make a day of it by visiting the restaurant, lingering in the courtyard garden and browsing the art bookshop, which are all free to enter, as are the ground floor exhibitions and displays. An admission charge applies to the collection and main exhibition spaces.
