EXHIBITION: Experience the life and work of William Kent, the most prominent architect and designer of early Georgian Britain. Explore how Kent’s artistic inventiveness set the style at a time when Britain defined itself as a new nation and developed a design aesthetic for the period.

The exhibition brings together over 200 examples of William Kent’s work (1719-48), including architectural drawings for Horse Guards at Whitehall, spectacular gilt furniture from Chiswick House and landscape designs for Holkham Hall. Discover the versatility of the ‘Kentian’ style and Kent’s lasting impact as a leading British tastemaker.
