FRANCIS HAMEL

 

Forthcoming exhibition

‘Rousham, Through the Gardens.’

Francis Hamel has lived on the Rousham estate in Oxfordshire for over twenty-five years. Designed in the 1730’s by William Kent and regarded as his most complete and unspoilt creation, the gardens at Rousham have been a constant source of inspiration for the artist during those years. Locked down in March 2020, and with the gardens closed to visitors, Hamel was presented with a unique opportunity to capture the spirit of this magical place through the changing seasons.The collection consists of over eighty paintings.

The exhibition will be in the artist’s studio and the north drawing room at Rousham House from 2nd to 6th October and the at The John Martin gallery, Albemarle Street, London from October 13th to November 5th.

Enquiries and RSVP to Tara Whelan, tara@jmlondon.com – Online viewing room available in early October.

The exhibition coincides with the publication of a new book on Rousham gardens featuring all the paintings in the exhibition together with essays by Francis Hamel, the novelist, Joanna Kavenna, garden designer, Tom Stuart-Smith and Director of the Garden Museum, Christopher Woodward.
