Kettle's Yard, Cambridge

One of Britain's finest galleries - a beautiful and unique house with a distinctive collection of 20th century art, and a gallery exhibiting contemporary and modern art.

Between 1958 and 1973 Kettle's Yard was the home of Jim and Helen Ede. In the 1920s and 30s Jim had been a curator at the Tate Gallery in London. Thanks to his friendships with artists and other like-minded people, over the years he gathered a remarkable collection.

At Kettle's Yard Jim carefully positioned these artworks alongside furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects, with the aim of creating a harmonic whole. In 1966 he gave the house and its contents to the University of Cambridge.
