A beautifully illustrated look at how the Sussex landscape has inspired creativity across the centuries, reassessing the rich artistic lives and work of British artists and writers connected with the area
Sussex is a county defined by its iconic chalk-cliff coastline and the rolling expanse of the South Downs to the North. This enduring landscape has inspired artists and writers across the centuries, most notably in the twentieth century when Sussex was home to leading artists and writers of the day. While some artists found solace and reflection in the landscape, for others it provided the vital space to explore different ways of living and artistic innovation. Following in the footsteps of these artists, this book tells a fascinating story of an area that continues to inspire.
Sussex Landscape features work by leading writers and artists including J. M. W. Turner, William Nicholson, Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Ivon Hitchens, Eric Ravilious, and Edward Burra alongside new work by contemporary artists and poems by Hilaire Belloc and Rudyard Kipling. Celebrating Sussex’s unique scenery, this book explores the county’s longstanding appeal as a place of exploration and inspiration.
