Inspired by Italy brings together black and white photography with eighteenth-century art in one of Yorkshire's great houses, Beningbrough Hall.
Inspired by Italy brings together the work of Kate Somervell, a landscape photographer based in Yorkshire, and Giovanni Battista Piranesi, an eighteenth-century Italian artist.
The exhibition highlights the romance and reality of Italy and the Italian influence on one of Yorkshire’s great houses.
Both artists take inspiration from architecture. Stunning views of Venice contrast with newly commissioned images of Beningbrough, alongside classical Rome.
Head to the first floor Reddihough Galleries in the hall. This is the first exhibition after a £2.3million infrastructure project and two year hall closure where new gallery lighting was introduced.
