'ROMANTICK SITUATIONS'

The title of our exhibition stems from Julius Caesar Ibbetson’s description of Morlais Castle in south Wales, which he was taken to see by his patrons, the Bute family, in 1789. As Britain prospered at home and prevailed overseas, Georgians increasingly felt a sense of uninterrupted connection with Britain’s ancient and mostly mysterious past. To them the huge castles in strategic and often dramatic settings stood for the turbulence, drama and territorial upheavals of the Middle Ages. For landscape painters already awakening to the stirring scenery to be found across the British Isles, its majestic castles, abbeys and ruins had an irresistible allure and contributed to the rise of the Romantic movement.
 
Our exhibition will include paintings and watercolours by Richard Wilson, Paul Sandby, Ibbetson, Edward Dayes, William Hodges, Alexander Nasmyth, and others, with prices ranging from £2,500 to £75,000.

As part of our collaboration with London Art Week James Mitchell will be giving a talk on the exhibition from 18.00-19.00, Wednesday 4th December, all clients and friends of the gallery are welcome to join.
