Nature in Art

Nature in Art is unique – it is the world’s only museum dedicated to all kinds of art inspired by nature.

At Nature in Art you will find a truly diverse range of world-class art: displays embrace two and three-dimensional work in all mediums and styles ranging from Picasso to Shepherd; spanning 1500 years, the collection contains work by 600 artists from over 50 countries.

So typically, in addition to a temporary exhibition, you will see watercolour landscapes, contemporary glass, the Flemish masters, modern abstract interpretations, bronze sculpture and even some exotic oriental treasures. With all this variety you are sure to find something appealing that will linger in your memory. You are likely to make some discoveries too!

Artists from across the world work at the museum during all opening hours between February and November. You may encounter painting, woodcarving, ceramic sculpting, printing, glass-working, textile art, mixed-media work or even another art form.
