Clare Twomey presents portraits of the current working life of Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire.

Clare Twomey

Shedding light on life at Welbeck, the exhibition reveals the push and pull of time on the historic estate, with portraits of its current working life shown as a series of lithopanes.

Lithopanes first became popular in the early 1800’s. When placed in front of a light, their hidden three-dimensional images become visible on the thin porcelain plate.

This exhibition is part of The Grand Tour, showcasing the diverse richness of art, architecture and landscape Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire have to offer.

Supported by Arts Council England’s Cultural Destinations Fund and the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.
