Founded in 1966 by H.S. Jim Ede, former curator of the Tate Gallery, to create a home and a welcome, a refuge of peace and order, of the visual arts and of music, Kettle’s Yard is now a major centre for 20th century and contemporary art. Incorporating Ede’s own comprehensive collection from the first half of the 20th Century, artists such as Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, David Jones and Joan Miró stand alongside sculptures by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Constantin Brancusi, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Paintings and sculpture are interlaced with furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects with regular exhibitions, educational events and lectures, an archive and a library.
