This small but important collection of mostly modern British art includes work by Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland. It's in a modern extension to Pallant House, a mansion built for a wealthy wine merchant in 1712, and considered one of the finest surviving examples of Chichcester's Georgian past. At that time its state-of-the-art design showed the latest in complicated brickwork and superb wood carving. Appropriate antiques and porcelains furnish the faithfully restored
rooms. Temporary and special exhibitions (usually three at once, six per year) invariably find new and interesting angles to cover.
