Arts Society Bath - Image and History: Art at the Lansdown Club

03 June 2019

7.10PM

Wine, tea and coffee available from 6.30 pm

Non Arts Society members are welcome at a cost of £8.00 and Arts Society visiting members £5.00.  

The current art collection at the Lansdowne Club highlights the fascinating architectural, social and political history of Lansdowne House, now home to this private members’ Club.

 

Through 18th century prints, oils, photography, modern silkscreens, lithographs and mixed media works, the image and history of this Grade II building comes to life. Located in Mayfair, central London, the internal fabric of this important building beautifully fuses 18th century neo-classical architecture, designed by Robert Adam, with the highly fashionable Art Deco style. This fully illustrated presentation will also highlight key works in the modern British art collection.  As former home to a past British Prime Minister, Lord Shelburne (1st Marquis of Lansdowne) and to Harry Gordon Selfridge, the department store magnate, you will also be regaled with stories of intrigue and passion as reflected in the art collection.
