The Artwork around the hotel has been selected to create an ambience and feel for the various interior spaces.
In Hyperion, the set of three back-lit canvasses were originally from Edward Muybridge’s photographic studies of ‘Animals in Motion’. This is a famous collection of early photographic studies done by Muybridge in the 19th century. The Tiger’s face and Dog’s face were also derived from these photographs.
Above the fireplace in Graffiti hangs a heavy mesh ‘Male Torso’ by Peter Osborne who works in the Midlands. The Artist Diane Epstein who has a Post Graduate Diploma in Art from St Martins College and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Miami University has produced paintings in the Restaurant, Hall and Lobby as well as many of the bedrooms from a blend of contemporary styles using Oils on Canvas.
On the first floor of the hotel, there is a collection of six watercolour and pencil impressions of Rome by Julian Bray, in Atlas and Calypso and in Phoebe are pencil studies of horses by Julian Bray from the work of Theodore Gericault.
Robin Maunsel paintings can be seen in many of the bedrooms and on the first floor, his pastels combine strands of early modern art. Robin describes his work as taking landscapes and bending them to his will, he believes that serious art cannot ignore traditions of its past.
Much of the artwork around the hotel is for sale - for prices please enquire at reception.
