The exhibition features over 90 pictures that capture light, space, and form in both contemporary and historical structures. The show features a section dedicated to Hélène Binet and Zaha Hadid's collaborative work. Binet was able to photograph practically all of the late architect's work thanks to their close collaboration.
John Costable is a well-known painter in England. The Romantic landscape painter was most renowned for his vistas of the Suffolk countryside, where Constable was born. The conservative artist, on the other hand, had a radical side. The late work of the beloved British artist will be the subject of a major exhibition. Through his paintings, oil sketches, watercolour drawings, and prints, you will be introduced to Constable's free and expressive style of painting. From Hampstead Heath to Brighton, the exhibition will feature artwork reflecting weather patterns and the British landscape. Constable's work during this period had a significant impact on following generations of artists, indicating a period of significant shift in painting at the end of the 10th century.
Faberge: Romance to Revolution
The long-awaited exhibition will recount the tale of Karl Fabergé, the king of jewellers, whose jewellery house is considered as a symbol of Russian wealth and refinement around the world. The first foreign Fabergé boutique opened in London in 1903, and it remained the firm's only outlet in Western Europe for a long time. Three Fabergé Easter Eggs from Russian museums will be on show for the first time in the UK: the Moscow Kremlin, Alexander Palace, and the Tercentenary of the House of Romanov. The Norfolk terrier Caesar, King Edward MP's favorite pet, is also made of chalcedony, as are artifacts from Elizabeth II's personal collection manufactured by the Fabergé jewellery firm.
