FANS of contemporary art have until September 29 to catch up with an exhibition by leading artist, Grayson Perry, at Croome Court.

Grayson Perry is well known for chronicling modern life through ceramics, tapestries and other art forms.

He is also well-known for cross-dressing, and he sometimes makes personal appearances as his female alter-ego "Claire" .

This time, Perry's stunning tapestries will be on display.

A spokesman said: "There are some fantastic works .Grayson Perry is one of the world’s most celebrated British contemporary artists and visitors will be able to see the epic ‘Battle of Britain’ tapestry and the intricate etchings of ‘Map of an Englishman’ and ‘Map of Days’. The colourful ‘Red Carpet’ and ‘The Digmoor Tapestry’ are also on show."

Croome is in very good company as an exhibition venue for Perry.

Grayson Perry has had exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, at the Barbican Centre,the British Museum, The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan.

He first came to wider public attention in 2003, when he was awarded The Turner Prize.

In 2008, The Daily Telegraph ranked Perry as number 32 in a list of the "100 most powerful people in British culture".

When pop artist Peter Blake did a new version of his iconic cover for The Beatles' ' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album in 2012, Grayson Perry was one of the figures he chose to include.

During the tours at Croome, Amy Forster-Smith, a Grayson Perry enthusiast and Croome’s Visitor Experience Manager, will explain each piece in turn, "interpreting the themes and details of each work during an informative walking tour spanning two rooms, the Tapestry Room and Library".

The free Grayson Perry, exhibition runs until Sunday September 29 between 11am and 4pm; normal admission applies to access Croome, the exhibition links to the Trust’s National Public Programme – People’s Landscapes,
