The Hatton Gallery’s collection comprises over 3,500 works, including painting, sculpture, prints, and drawing, with works from the 14th century to the present day. Of paramount importance is the Merzbarn wall by Kurt Schwitters. Constructed in a barn in the Lake District during 1947-48, the Merzbarn was Schwitters’ final, and in his own estimation, ‘greatest’, piece of work.

The extensive programme of temporary exhibitions means that it is not possible to have the whole collection on permanent display; however pieces from the collection are often used in conjunction with internal and touring exhibitions. The gallery is dedicated to facilitating the research and development of its collection on all levels and welcomes those interested in the permanent collection.
