Work by major artists from the 1960s onwards will be shown at the Corn Hall in Diss as part of a drive to make contemporary art accessible to an audience outside major cities.

The exhibition which opens on Wednesday and runs until July 12 features work by artists David Hockney, Lucian Freud, Celia Paul and Grayson Perry.

David Hockney's etchings were as important as his paintings in establishing his career and one of his rare early pieces from 1964 'Jungle Boy' will be shown as part of the display.

Lucian Freud did few finished paintings with prints often taking their place - one of his most complex ones 'Garden In Winter' from 1999 is also being exhibited.

Artist Celia Paul was a protege of Lucian Freud and used soft ground etching to make quiet, contemplative moving studies of family life.
