About

A remarkable collection of watercolour paintings and drawings once owned by the Empress Catherine the Great of Russia at Hampton Court Palace, part of the nationwide commemorations marking the 300th anniversary of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown's birth. Never displayed before, the collection of almost 60 intricately detailed views of the palace, park and gardens vividly captures Hampton Court during the time when Capability Brown served there as Chief Gardener to King George III. The exhibition will explore the intriguing history of this collection, which lay forgotten in the stores of the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Russia for over two centuries.
