THE MUNNINGS ART MU­SEUM

EADT Suffolk - - GALLERIES GUIDE -

The Munnings Art Mu­seum owns the world’s largest col­lec­tion of paint­ings and draw­ings by Sir Al­fred Munnings. Best known for his out­stand­ing eques­trian scenes, Munnings also cap­tured ru­ral English life and land­scapes in the early twen­ti­eth cen­tury. In 2018, to mark the 250th an­niver­sary of the found­ing of the Royal Acad­emy, the mu­seum presents high­lights from its col­lec­tion il­lus­trat­ing Munnings’ long as­so­ci­a­tion with it. A spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion, Munnings and the River, ex­plores his less well known artis­tic re­sponses to the Bri­tish land­scape.
