Tickets available daily
Both artists have fond memories of Chiswick House Gardens.
Sir Peter recalls his long association and affection for Chiswick House Gardens as '....a special place for me. I took our daughter Rose there so many times when she was a child. The wonderful landscape, the calmness of the lake and the beautiful trees are an inspiration. I am thrilled that the Camellia Collection in the restored Conservatory is being celebrated. I hope my painting will capture some of that beauty for others, and raise funds for Chiswick House and Gardens Trust.'
Marthe Armitage was happy to help the Trust saying 'Chiswick House and Gardens is an extraordinarily wonderful place and I feel incredibly lucky to have such a unique park here in Chiswick that we can all enjoy'.
