Alfred Munnings is a fascinating character. Gifted, talented, connected, an aristocrat who was also a bully and a philistine. A really mad mix. His paintings are glorious, yet as President of the Royal Academy was forced to resign as a result iof his public and trenchant views on 'modern' art - in particular his dismissal at a dinner with Sir EWinston Churchill of one of art' most gifted andable visionaries - Piccasso. His paintings live and breath whatever they depict. Yet at the same time, as a man, he was horrid. Visit this fascinating exhibition/museum in his own home and try to get your head around a complex and troubled man. One of England's great 20th Century painters. But a horrible, horrible man. How do the two go together? Make your own mind up.
