Organizer Really Helpful Club
On 8th May 2019 Jenna Burlingham Fine Art and the RHC will be hosting a private view and tour of an exhibition of Modern British paintings, prints, sculpture and ceramics to be held in the private, Holland Park home of Lindy Guinness, the Marchioness of Dufferin and Ava who is an artist herself.
On display will be works by established 20th-century artists, such as Edward Bawden, Terry Frost, David Jones, Ben Nicholson, Ivon Hitchens, Mary Newcomb, Victor Pasmore, Mary Potter and Alfred Wallis. There will be a focus on two bodies of work produced in the 1950s and ‘60s, the paper collages of Gwyther Irwin and the abstract impressionist paintings of John Hubbard.
The tour will be given by Jenna Burlingham, founder of Jenna Burlingham Fine Art and specialist in Modern British works of art.
The house has been the London home of Lindy Guinness for more than fifty years, purchased shortly after her late husband, Sheridan, co-founded the Yasmin Gallery in 1963.
The gallery and the house were at the forefront of the thriving contemporary art world in the 1960s. Countless outstanding artworks were displayed at the house, though one of the most famous is likely David Hockney’s A Bigger Splash (1967, Tate collection), that hung in the very room in which our exhibition will be taking place. The parties hosted at the house in the 60s and 70s were renowned, with guest lists including everyone from Francis Bacon to the Queen Mother.
Cost £25 to include coffee and tea on arrival
