William Kent: Designing Georgian Britain

Victoria and Albert Museum, 22 March - 13 July 2014

William Kent (1685-1748) was the leading architect and designer of early Georgian Britain. A polymath, he turned his hand from painting to designing sculpture, architecture, interior decoration, furniture, metalwork, book illustration, theatrical design, costume and landscape gardens. His life coincided with a major turning point in British history - the accession of the new Hanoverian Royal Family in 1714. This exhibition reveals how William Kent came to play a leading role in establishing a new design aesthetic for this crucial period when Britain defined itself as a new nation.

We are delighted that Chiswick House and Gardens features so prominently in the new upcoming exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum that celebrates the work of William Kent and the importance of his relationship with Lord Burlington. Chiswick House & Gardens feature some of the most important examples of Kent's designs.
