The Cotswolds is well known for its association with Art including the Broadway Group of Artists and famously John Singer Sargent and William Morris.

Nearly every Cotswold town has an art gallery and some have six or seven as in the village of Broadway. The art heritage of the region stimulates an ever increasing flow of new painters and visitors alike wanting to immerse themselves in this wealth of art promoted by the intrinsic natural beauty of the Cotswolds region.

Henry James, the American author who lived for a time in the Cotswolds, sums this up by writing of Broadway ......

'furnished apartments are useful to the artist, but a furnished country is even more so... This is the great recommendation of Broadway: everything in it is convertible . . There is portraiture in the air and composition in the very accidents. Everthing is a subject or an effect....It is delicious to be at Broadway and not have to draw'

In this section we intend to increasingly showcase Art Galleries that will be of special interest to the visitor.

Compton Verney Art Gallery

Address: Compton Verney, Warwickshire, CV35 9HZ

Compton Verney, near Stratford-upon-Avon in south Warwickshire, is a Grade I listed building, remodelled by the eighteenth-century architect Robert Adam and set in 120 acres of grounds created by the famous landscape artist Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.

Compton Verney Gallery is Warwickshire's award-winning art gallery. Since its opening in 2004, it has continued to deliver an exciting international programme of exhibitions and events, alongside a diverse collection of art from around the world. It offers visitors the unique opportunity to view art in its spectacular parkland setting.

Interior of Compton Verney Art Gallery

Compton Verney houses six permanent collections, focusing on areas currently under-represented in British museums and galleries.

The collections are owned by the Compton Verney Collections Settlement and continue to grow, supported by funds from the Sir Peter Moores Foundation.

The temporary exhibitions programme offers both historic and contemporary shows and is designed to appeal to a wide audience.

The gallery has a beautiful café and separate fine restaurant and you can also picnic in the grounds.

The architect James Gibbs who designed the Radcliffe Camera at Oxford designed the stable block at Compton Verney.
