Remembering Repton showcases Humphry Repton in this the bicentenary of his death. Successor to ‘Capability’ Brown, he was the leading gardener of his generation. With a strong link to Harewood, Repton’s life and prolific work is reunited for the first time with proposals, drawings and watercolours that he presented to the Lascelles family following visits here in 1800 and 1802.
Kate McGuire’s Seed to Table in The Terrace Gallery presents a series of delicate and meticulously observed images of edible plants, fruit and vegetables in pencil, ink and watercolour. Kate was an artist in residence at Harewood and her work reflects the harvest of fruit and vegetables from Seeds of Hope. A new line of prints and gifts, including a notebook, notecards, tea towel and tote bag designed by Kate McGuire will also be on sale.
Seeds of Hope continues in the Walled Garden and expands into the Servant’s Hall as part of the House display of autumn and continues the homage to the end of the First World War and what that meant for life in and around the House and Gardens.
