Painting the gardens
The next exhibition is in October 2021 and will be of the gardens at Rousham. Locked down for eighteen months in his studio in the gardens at Rousham, Francis Hamel has built up a major new collection of paintings of this astonishing landscape. Monty Don describes William Kent as the genius of eighteenth century garden design and Rousham as his masterpiece. This new collection of over sixty paintings captures both the seventeenth century walled gardens with espalier pear trees and Box parterre as well as the eighteenth century Pleasure grounds designed by William Kent.
The show will start at Rousham at the beginning of October 2021 and will then move to London to run from 18th October to 12th November at The John Martin Gallery.
A book of the paintings will be published to coincide with the exhibition featuring essays by Francis Hamel, the garden designer Tom Stuart-Smith, the Director of the Garden Museum Christopher Woodward and the author Joanna Kavenna.
