Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell exhibition
Must-see exhibition on at Clarendon Cross' Piano Nobile. Drawing from private collections and a substantial group of works from The Charleston Trust, the exhibition will include one of Bell and Grant’s most spectacular joint commissions: The Famous Women Dinner Service. Begun in 1932 at the request of the art historian and director of the National Gallery Kenneth Clark and his wife Jane, the fifty plates were decorated with images of famous women through the ages, from Sappho to Greta Garbo. Considered lost for nearly forty years, and never publicly exhibited, they form an impressive testament to Bell and Grant’s close working partnership. On until 28th April, 11am - 4pm.
