The Munnings Art Museum special exhibition 2021: Yours with Love, AJ


When Alfred Munnings married his second wife Violet in April 1920 his reputation as a notable equestrian portraitist was flourishing. As a result of this he was frequently away from home for extended periods and he wrote home to his new wife of these experiences. The museum’s displays are interwoven with original correspondence, preparatory sketches and finished works that relate to this time.


To accompany the exhibition the museum has published a unique volume of the fifty of these hitherto unpublished and generally unseen personal letters written between 1920 and 1922.
