THE MUNNINGS ART MUSEUM
Tagg's Island (detail), oil on canvas by Munnings, Alfred James, 1878–1959, photo credit: The Munnings Art Museum
Alfred Munnings is most well-known for painting horses; his depiction of them is always eloquent, and often vital and energetic. In this painting, Tagg’s Island, Munnings reveals another side to his artistry, both in subject and style, vividly setting it apart from the equestrian portraits that subsequently built his career. The picture was shown at the Royal Academy in 1920 and in later life, Munnings nostalgically wrote of it:
Where are all the jolly crew – friends of my bachelor life – who sat for it?
Jenny Hand, Director
The Munning's Art Museum is dedicated to Sir Alfred Munnings (1878–1959), his life and works. Each year a changing selection of 150 paintings and drawings from the museum's significant collection is hung throughout the rooms of Castle House, Munning's home from 1919 until his death.
