Frank Walter at Harewood House, Leeds
30th June 2017 - 29th October 2017
30 June – 29 October 2017
Harewood House, Leeds
This summer Harewood House Trust will present a major solo exhibition by Antiguan artist Frank Walter, with support from Ingleby Gallery.
Frank Walter (Francis Archibald Wentworth Walter), self-styled ‘7th Prince of the West Indies, Lord of Follies and the Ding-a-Ding Nook’, was born in Antigua in 1926. Walter was hugely talented as an artist and writer, although somewhat flawed by an obsession with his ancestral lineage which he believed linked him with the aristocratic families of Europe including Charles II (through his mistress Lucy Walter), Franz Joseph of Austria and the Dukes of Buccleuch.
Coinciding with a major solo presentation of Walter’s work at the 57th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Flamboyant Trees at Harewood House comprises over 60 paintings, including landscapes purposely selected to resonate with Harewood’s surrounding gardens designed by Capability Brown.
