More Detail

Newlands House is an exciting new gallery space dedicated to world-class exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, photography and design. Running in parallel with exhibitions, the gallery’s annual cultural programme will build on the heritage of Petworth and the town’s reputation for excellence in music, literature and antiques. As Artistic Director, leading art auctioneer and curator Simon de Pury will be at the helm of the programme, which will include events, educational activities and talks with prolific artists, curators and thought leaders.
Newlands House occupies a spacious Grade II listed Georgian townhouse and adjacent coach house in Petworth, West Sussex, in the heart of the South Downs. Spanning 7,500 square feet, the building was originally built for Dr. Newlands in the 18th century and was most recently occupied by an antiques and interiors shop, Augustus Brandt Antiques. Petworth boasts one of the country’s largest art collections, housed in the National Trust’s Petworth House and Park, and sits at the centre of Sussex’s burgeoning cultural scene, spanning museums, art centres, festivals, vineyards, nature trails and stately homes.
For its inaugural show, Newlands House will stage an exhibition of original photographs by Helmut Newton (1920-2004), including a number of significant masterpieces and rare prints, such as the unique print, Big Nude III (Henrietta variant), 1980 which has never before been publicly displayed in the UK. This solo exhibition is the first of a series of retrospectives planned this year to commemorate 100 years of Helmut Newton’s birth, which will culminate at the Helmut Newton Foundation, Berlin on 31st October 2020, exactly 100 years since the artist’s birth. Other works on show will include Walter Steiger shoe, Monte Carlo,1983 and Elsa Peretti, Bunny, New York, 1975.
