Image & History: Art at the Landsdowne Club

Posted on behalf of The Arts Society

About the Talk:


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.


The talk will examine the original floor plan as designed by the celebrated Scottish architect, Robert Adam and the changes made thereafter. This fully illustrated presentation will also highlight key works in the modern British art collection, demonstrating how current commissions and acquisitions can complement the heritage of this historic building. As former home to a past British Prime Minister, Lord Shelburne (1st Marquis of Lansdowne) and to Harry Gordon Selfridge, the department store magnate, Members will also be regaled with stories of intrigue and passion as reflected in the art collection.




Wine, tea and coffee will be available from 6.30 pm.
