Fine Art

Since the end of the 18th century, Hastings has inspired generations of artists.  They have been drawn by the diversity of its scenery, its historical significance anditand the industrial activity on its unique fishing beach.

The Museum's Fine Art Collection contains over 6,000 prints, drawings, watercolours and oils, most of which have a strong local connection.  Discover more of our oil paintings on the BBC Your Paintings website.
