William Kent: Designing Georgian BritainIt's 300 years since the Hanoverian accession to the throne so, to mark this significant episode of UK history, the V&A will be staging a major exhibition of the work of one of the periods most influential architects, designers and tastemakers, William Kent (1685-1748). In an era that would go on to see Londons rapid growth, characterised by Georgian squares and terraces, and the emergence of talent such as Robert Adam and Capability Brown, Kent led the way. A polymath who was at home with everything from painting to architecture, landscape design to book illustration, he built an eclectic portfolio that included buildings for the Treasury and Horse Guards; interiors and furniture for Chiswick House, Burlington House and Norfolks Holkham Hall; silverware for the royal family; and the royal barge (now housed in Greenwich Maritime Museum).

 

About Victoria and Albert (V & A) Museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) was originally founded in 1852 to inspire and educate British designers and manufacturers. Today it houses over 4 million items spanning centuries and hundreds of cultures. The stunning collection covers European, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Islamic artefacts ranging from ceramics, glass, metalwork and sculpture to costume, armour, weaponry and furniture.
