The John Scott Collection: Architect-Designers: From Pugin to Voysey
Architect-Designers: From Pugin to Voysey, at The Fine Art Societys New Bond Street galeries, was the seventh and last exhibition showcasing the renowned John Scott Collection. The selection presented some of the finest pieces in the collection, illustrating a critical period of British design when architects showed that there was nothing too small or unimportant, inside or outside the home, to turn their attention to. From A.W.N. Pugin’s 1830s designs for the Palace of Westminster to C.F.A. Voysey’s own side table, this selling exhibition included rare ceramics, glass and textiles alongside furniture and metalwork.
