In celebration of the tercentenary of ‘Capability’ Brown in 2016 we are producing publications that will promote and explain the 17th Century art of landscape development, habitat creation and his legacy, as highlighted in the following:
The breakaway from formal landscapes, The creation of ‘Back to Nature’ landscapes, The early influences and the countryside of his birth, Commissions, Reconstructions through art, The landscape in harmony with Architecture (built environment), Floral studies, Arboricultural studies, Entomological studies, Fauna, Ornithology, Entomological studies, People benefitting from the legacy…working the landscapes, Amphibians, Reptilia, Equine, Agriculture
Our studios Kirkharle in Northumberland, England – the birthplace of ‘Capability’ Brown,is the ideal setting for such a project.
All the original art will be produced in our own studios or ‘en plein air’ and will be exhibited in various venues in the UK.
Our focus of interest is the special relationship that ‘Capability’ had with nobility, especially the 1st Duke of Northumberland who commissioned two sites; Northumberland and London.
See below a selection of the work in progress imagery that will be updated as we progress the project…keep watching these spaces.
