A fine collection of modern art in a unique and beautiful domestic setting & a gallery showing regular exhibitions. A major collection of 20th century paintings and sculpture, exhibited in a house of unique character. The gallery houses contemporary art exhibitions, talks and discussions.
For 16 years, Kettle's Yard was the home of Jim Ede, the first modern art curator at the Tate Gallery, and his wife, Helen. The house contains Ede's art collection, including paintings by Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, David Jones and Joan Miro and sculpture by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Constantin Brancusi, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
In the house, painting and sculpture are interlaced with furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects. Jim Ede hoped that Kettle's Yard would be a place where visitors would 'find a home and a welcome refuge of peace and order, of the visual arts and of music'.
Next door to Kettle's Yard house is a temporary exhibition gallery with an international reputation for its changing programme of 20th century and contemporary exhibitions.
'This is one of the best things I've ever been to in my travels and I stumbled on it by accident', recent visitor to Kettle's Yard.
'One of the country's most intimate and spell binding museums.... restorative, homely yet life changing' Britain's Best Museums and Galleries, Penguin 2004.
