Great Yarmouth Masterpieces

Sea View by J.S.Cotman, c1810-20
Discover Great Yarmouth through the eyes of the Norwich School of Artists in this exhibition of paintings and drawings.
This delightful exhibition of paintings and drawings from Norfolk Museums & Archaeology Service collections includes atmospheric views of local landmarks – the beach, jetty and quay side – by artists such as John Sell Cotman, John Crome and Joseph Stannard.
In the 19th century, Norfolk was home to this close-knit group of painters, who formed the first regional group of artists in England. They were inspired by Great Yarmouth, with its bustling quay side and growing popularity as a holiday destination. And as many potential patrons and benefactors lived by the quay, some of the artists chose to make Yarmouth their home.
A programme of talks and family activities complements the exhibition.
For details visit www.museums.norfolk.gov.uk
