Pallant House Gallery Exhibition

Chichester’s Pallant House Gallery is one of my favourite places in the nearby world. On the outside  (and much of the inside) it is Grade I listed Queen Anne splendour. On its walls it displays one of the greatest modern art collections in the country. As a haven from the crazybusy run-up to Christmas it can’t be beaten, especially as it’s still running the exhibition Gwen John and Celia Paul: Painters In Parallel, showing the work of these two 20th century artists. Who would have thought there would be something so peaceful about the image of a chair, just standing in a room? I know this image is not very Christmassy. But that’s the point! And if you are besotted by interiors, which I am, then it is pretty much perfect…
