British Design

27 November 2017 - 3 January 2018 London

From Edward William Godwin's remodelling of the gallery's facade in 1881 to James Whistler's redesigning of the gallery space for his seminal exhibition Arrangement in White and Yellow, the gallery has held a long engagment with designers and the decorative arts. The gallery's history represents an intersection of these two fields, which were presented in the exhibition Brirtish Design. The exhibition included furniture, textile, glass, metal and ceramic design from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, alongside pictures and sculpture within the beautiful setting of the gallery.
