Farleys House & Gallery - 2017 Season


The former home of Lee Miller and Sir Roland Penrose is open on Sundays from 2nd April to 29th October 2017.

Tucked away in the Sussex countryside Farleys conjures up an extraordinary atmosphere that testifies to its position as a meeting place for some of the key personalities in twentieth-century art.

Lee Miller and Roland Penrose came to live in Farleys House in 1949 and for the 35 years that followed they built up a collection of contemporary art treasures, many of which were created by their friends and visitors including Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington and Joan Miro. The work of these and numerous others are exhibited in the house alongside those of Penrose and Miller giving the visitor a fascinating look into the world of the Surrealists.
