The 2015 season begins 1 April with the opening of a series of new displays charting the life and career of Sir Alfred Munnings and a special focus exhibition on Munnings as a painter of horses.
Munnings (1878-1959) was an immensely successful, yet controversial, artist whose career spanned almost 70 years. He was not only a major figure in the great tradition of British equestrian art but also celebrated for his depictions of scenes from English rural life. Visitors to the Munnings Art Museum at his former home, Castle House, can explore the life and work of this prolific East Anglian artist through a series of carefully curated displays, selected from the museumâ€™s comprehensive collection of his work. Knowledgeable guides are on hand during opening hours, while groups can book an exclusive out-of-hours visit with an introduction to highlights from the collection.
