Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry’s The Vanity of Small Differences is on display for the first time in Surrey and tells the story of Tim Rakewell, embarking on a journey of twenty-first century social mobility.

Inspired by William Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress, the six tapestries, each measuring 2m x 4m, portray many of the characters, incidents and objects Grayson Perry encountered on journeys through Sunderland, Tunbridge Wells and the Cotswolds for the Channel 4 TV series All in the Best Possible Taste.

The Vanity of Small Differences is an Arts Council Collection touring exhibition.
