Throughout 2017, works from the Jerwood Collection will be presented in chronological decades in the upstairs gallery spaces. The first display, which is currently showing in Rooms 6 and 7 (until 21 May 2017) shows pieces from the early 20th century together with works from the 1920s.

Within this historical presentation, works on paper have been grouped together in Room 6 and works by artists inspired by the artistic community who settled in Cornwall during the first quarter of the 20th century in Room 7.
