An exhibition in the Prince Regent Gallery, Royal Pavilion centred on our recent acquisition of J M W Turner’s watercolour Brighthelmston, Sussex (1824).

Brighthelmston, Sussex captures a significant era in Brighton’s history as a seaside resort, and was for many years known only through an engraving by George Cooke published in Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England (1825). The original work remained effectively out of sight in private ownership for over 100 years. In January 2012 Brighthelmston, Sussex was put up for auction, and the Royal Pavilion & Museums successfully acquired it, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Art Fund.
