On display in the hall is a hand-picked selection of artworks from the De Morgan Collection. It is an unparalleled collection of work by the late 19th and early 20th century ceramicist William De Morgan and his artist wife Evelyn Pickering De Morgan.

Many of the works have never before been on public display and include grand, sweeping canvases such as Evelyn De Morganís Boreas and Oreithyia, delicate drawings, curious decorative arts such as a head of Medusa with a gilded background of snakes and of course William De Morganís highly recognisable, brightly coloured and detailed ceramics. The must- see pieces will take up long term residency in the upper rooms of the hall.

The collection is the only place in the North of England where De Morgan pieces can be viewed in all their glory on a lasting basis. This long-term partnership with Cannon Hall forms part of the De Morgan Foundationís commitment to providing wider public access to the collection. Cannon Hall will also become a key member of the network of De Morgan Collection exhibitions and loans in the UK and around the world.

As well as enjoying beautiful works of art, visitors can also explore the strong links between Cannon Hallís most famous residents, the Spencer-Stanhopes and the De Morgans.
