The Permanent Collection

The Tatham Art Gallery houses a collection of significant British and French artworks dating back to the 18th century. Its South-African collection is focused on, but not exclusive to, the art of KwaZulu-Natal.

Juxtaposition: style - metaphor - format

This selection from the Gallery's permanent collection includes portraits, landscapes and still-life. Art works in different media and from different times, both European and South African, hang side by side to provide a juxtaposition of style, metaphor and format.

Contrasts: Vessels and Containers

Throughout human history, people from different cultures, from kings to commoners, have used a variety of containers for domestic purposes.
