City Art Gallery

Southampton City Art Gallery is internationally renowned for its permanent collection which features around 5,000 works.

The gallery, based in Southampton’s burgeoning Cultural Quarter, opened in 1939. It attracts art-lovers, curious amateurs as well as those who simply enjoy the atmosphere of a gallery

Its collections span eight centuries and tell the story of western art from the Renaissance to the present day. The core of the collection is twentieth century and contemporary British art. Strong clusters within this include Post-Impressionism (notably the Camden Town Group), Surrealism, St Ives and progressive contemporary art from the mid-1970s.
