The Colman Art Galleries at Norwich Castle display the museum’s world-famous collection of Norwich School paintings. The two galleries have displays, films about the Norwich School, a new touch-screen learning resource and contemporary art. The ‘British Masters’ gallery showcases the work of the two leading figures of the Norwich School, John Crome and John Sell Cotman, displaying their greatest masterpieces side by side for the first time. The Norwich School artists are known worldwide for their depiction of Norwich and Norfolk. The ‘Landscape & Nature’ gallery focuses on the paintings this celebrated group of artists created in response to the landscape that surrounded them. Their paintings are seen as quintessential portrayals of the region. Artists today continue to find inspiration in the Norfolk countryside with its broad skies and wide open landscapes. Photographs of the East Anglian landscape by Mark Edwards are on display in the new Colman Project Space.
