Hidden Highlights – Life in Lockdown

24 October 2020 – 12 September 2021

Featuring over 80 works from the Russell-Cotes rich and diverse fine art collection, this exhibition reinterprets some of our lesser-seen works through a lockdown lens.

As we all continue to struggle to remember everyday life before a global pandemic, Life in Lockdown, takes a light-hearted look at paintings created B.C. (Before Coronavirus).

Let the Russell-Cotes whisk you away to foreign destinations (without the need to quarantine) or simply take time out to appreciate the stunning Dorset country side (without the hordes of day-trippers).

See hidden treasures from our painting store, reinterpreted through a lockdown lens.
