This is a real find in the pretty countryside around Dedham Vale. Housed in the artist's own house, this is a compact, manageable set of his paintings - country scenes, horses of various sorts, portraits and so on. There is also personal memorabilia. We prefer to see this size of collection, rather than the huge number in big galleries, which you can't really take in. Very representative of Munnings. His style is a sort of English, 20th century impressionism - reminiscent of Renoir. We thought the entrance fee was very reasonable for an attraction - not so expensive that we had money over to buy a guide book, postcards and a cup of tea. The gardens are a pleasant surrounding for the house, but are not especially noteworthy. There is also a studio in which the artist worked. There were some very knowledgeable volunteers on duty on the day we visited, which added to our enjoyment.
