Brighton & Hove Museums

The Royal Pavilion & Museums Trust’s combined fine art collection ranges from the late fifteenth century to the present – around 1,500 oil paintings, 4,000 watercolours and drawings, and over 10,000 prints. The collection dates back to 1851, and Brighton Museum and Art Gallery was opened on Church Street in 1873, with one of the earliest purpose-built municipal picture galleries in the country. New paintings were purchased or donated in a series of bequests. Henry Willett’s 1903 gift included The Raising of Lazarus by Jan Lievens, which once hung in the home of Rembrandt. In 1997, the collection was integrated with that of Hove Museum & Art Gallery, which had acquired a significant collection by artists of the Camden Town School and paintings by the likes of Hilda Carline, Duncan Grant and Gilbert Spencer. Today the combined collection features works by Zoffany, Angelica Kauffmann, Hogarth, Gainsborough, William Blake, J. M. W. Turner, John Constable, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Samuel Palmer, Rosa Bonheur, Glyn Philpot, Walter Sickert, Vanessa Bell, Paul Nash, Graham Sutherland, Jacob Epstein and Stanley Spencer.

Shipping Policy

Order Turnaround
We aim to dispatch orders within 1-3 business days – this can be longer during busy periods. Orders being sent to a UK address are usually delivered within 1-3 working days, but international orders can take up to two weeks to be delivered – please allow up to 3-4 weeks in transit to be safe.

International orders
International orders are shipped with Royal Mail International on a tracked service. 

You will be required to sign for your package (where the service is available). If no one is available to provide a signature, a delivery card will be left at your address.

Please take care to enter your delivery address correctly as we cannot be held responsible for any undelivered parcels or parcels delayed in transit due to incorrect address details being provided to us.

Duties & Taxes
Please note that if your order is being shipped outside of the UK, it is subject to duties and import taxes which are the responsibility of the customer to pay. You will be billed directly by the customs office of the destination country. Because the UK has sadly now left the EU, this now applies to orders shipping to countries in the European Union.
