A Prince’s Treasure

From Buckingham Palace to the Royal Pavilion – the Royal Collection Returns to Brighton

A spectacular loan from the Royal Collection is on display at the Royal Pavilion. The culmination of a collaborative venture between Royal Collection Trust and the Royal Pavilion & Museums, over 120 remarkable decorative works of art that were originally commissioned by the Prince Regent, have been relocated from Buckingham Palace and re-united in their previous setting of the Royal Pavilion.  Many of the works have not been on public display for over 170 years and are on loan to the Royal Pavilion whilst essential building works in the East Wing of Buckingham Palace take place. This unique project provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for visitors to see these magnificent items in their former home.

Floating Worlds: Japanese Woodcuts

Come with us on a journey to explore the ‘floating worlds’ of Japan through woodblock prints from the Edo period (1615–1868).  The style of prints on display is known as Ukiyo-e, which means ‘pictures of the floating world’.  Ukiyo-e prints show pleasurable activities in beautiful surroundings and often have deeper meanings.  Guided by haiku poetry, this exhibition invites you to mindfully experience the sights of 19th-century Japan.  Explore the city of Edo (now called Tokyo), visit the Kabuki theatre, watch fireworks and peek into private spaces.  To get some air, take a stroll through the Japanese countryside, see the sea or climb high into the mountains.

Sue Jones – Textiles as Reminiscence:  The Journey Within and Without

At first sight Dr Sue Jones has created in this exhibition a series of knitted handmade objects – unusual individual items – as much art as craft.  But each one is a story – about her 30-year experiences of working around the world and seeing how other cultures, their art, textiles and traditions affected her – combining all that design, colour, tradition in a personal way as art representations.
