LondonTown.com: Incredible exhibition examines science and art of crime detection

LONDON, December 09, 2014 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — It’s going to be a gruesome February for visitors to London’s Wellcome Collection, when this thoughtful gallery dedicated to the overlap of science and art will open a major exhibition looking at the history, science and art of forensic medicine. Forensics: The Anatomy Of Crime (26 February-21 June 2015) will travel from crime scene to courtroom, across centuries and continents, exploring the specialisms of those involved in the delicate processes of collecting, analysing and presenting medical evidence. It draws out the stories of victims, suspects and investigators of violent crimes, and our enduring cultural fascination with death and detection. Not for the faint-hearted, the exhibition will be in the rich tradition of the Wellcome Collection, which explores challenging but fascinating subjects. The gallery is located on the Euston Road, close to St Pancras, Euston and King’s Cross stations. For more on the area – and to find the cheapest hotels in London – see LondonTown.com.

Forensics will display original evidence, archival material, photographic documentation, film footage, forensic instruments and specimens, and is rich with artworks offering both unsettling and intimate responses to traumatic events. It will look at famous cases involving forensic advances, including the Dr Crippen trial and the Ruxton murders, as well as pioneers of forensic investigation and the voices of experts working in the field today. Science, historic artefacts – such as Victorian sketches from Jack The Ripper murder scenes – and contemporary artists will illuminate the topic in five sections, from ‘The Crime Scene”, “The Morgue”, “The Laboratory” and “The Search” to the “The Courtroom”. The exhibition will also look at how forensics has been viewed historically, right back to the ancient world.

Lucy Shanahan, the curator, says: “This exhibition gives alternative views of the forensic process from the CSI detections of popular fiction and television, while exploring the cultural fascination that the disciplines of forensic medicine inspire. Our journey from crime scene to courtroom takes in pioneers of scientific techniques that have revolutionised the way in which crimes are investigated, and offers visitors unexpected encounters with the changing relationship between medicine, law and society.” For more information, see LondonTown.com

LondonTown.com: Historic sculpture exhibition in London next year

LONDON, December 08, 2014 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — London’s Tate Britain has announced a major exhibition devoted to the innovative and compelling sculpture produced during Queen Victoria’s reign (1837-1901). Sculpture Victorious will show how sculpture featured in all aspects of Victorian life, including politics, empire and industry, and includes major Victorian sculptors like Francis Chantrey and Alfred Gilbert, alongside lesser-known artists such as Mary Watts and William Reynolds-Stephens. The exhibition opens on 25th February 2015 and will continue until 25 th May. The Tate Britain is one of London’s most popular art galleries, covering the history of British art and containing some of the world’s most important paintings. For more about this and other galleries in London, see LondonTown.com, where you will also find the best deals for cheap hotels in London.

The Victorian period was a Golden Age for British sculpture. The country had a monarch who commissioned and encouraged sculptors, and the state commissioned a range of sculpture and decoration to ornament the new Houses of Parliament. The grand public events, most famously The Great Exhibition of 1851, provided spectacular opportunities to showcase these productions, and demonstrate new developments in the carving of traditional materials such as wood or marble.

Throughout the period sculptors allied technical novelty to iconographic innovation, finding new subjects and compositions inspired by antiquity and the nation’s past to create works that would have startled their predecessors. These works still have the capacity to surprise us today. George Frampton’s life-size Dame Alice Owen 1897 in marble, alabaster, bronze, paint and gilding will be shown alongside finely-wrought silver and exquisitely-detailed electrotypes, such as James Sherwood Westmacott’s electroplated Baron Saher de Quincy, Earl of Winchester in 1854. The latter has been removed from the House of Lords for the very first time for this exhibition. Other significant loans include George Gilbert Scott’s model for the tomb of Philippa of Hainault in Westminster Abbey (1850-1), and Rafaelle Monti’s breathtaking Veiled Vestal. Frederic Leighton’s An Athlete Wrestling with a Python 1877, Sir Hamo Thornycroft’s Teucer 1881 and Hylas Surprised by the Naiades exh.1837 by John Gibson from Tate’s collection are also included. For more information on the exhibition, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Remember Waterloo at Trafalgar Square next spring

LONDON, December 08, 2014 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Next year marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, and London will be commemorating the occasion with a number of events, including a brand new exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Wellington: Triumphs, Politics and Passions (12 Mar-7 Jun 2015) will explore not only the political and military career of the victor of this great battle but also his personal life through portraits of his family and friends. It takes place at the National Portrait Gallery in Trafalgar Square, close to numerous central London attractions and well-placed for cheap London hotels as well as the best London restaurants, shops and cafes. For more on the area, see LondonTown.com.

Highlights of the exhibition will include Goya’s portrait of Wellington started in 1812 after his entry into Madrid and later modified twice to recognise further battle honours and awards, and Thomas Lawrence’s famous 1815 portrait painted in the same year as the Battle of Waterloo. This iconic military image of Wellington was used as the basis of the design of the £5 note from 1971 to 1991. Drawn from museums and private collections including that of the present Duke of Wellington, the exhibition of 59 portraits and other art works includes rarely-seen loans from the family including a portrait by John Hoppner of the Duke as a youthful soldier and a daguerreotype portrait by Antoine Claudet, in the new medium of photography, taken on Wellington’s 75th birthday in 1844.

The real experience of soldiers fighting in Wellington’s armies will also be explored through eyewitness accounts, including prints based on sketches by serving soldiers. But overall, Wellington: Triumphs, Politics and Passions will consider the attempts of the art world to celebrate the Duke of Wellington’s military successes. Commemorative objects on display will range from royal commissions by Europe’s foremost artists and manufacturers to more modest souvenirs aimed at the domestic market. Wellington’s eventful and often difficult political career will be illustrated by examples of the many satirical prints published in the 1820s and 1830s and the exhibition will also examine the reappraisal of Wellington’s life that took place at his death and on the occasion of his lavish state funeral. The exhibition is part of the Battle of Waterloo 200th Anniversary Commemorations. For more information on other events in the commemorations, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Christmas classical concert in prestigious London gallery

LONDON, December 04, 2014 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — One of London’s leading art galleries will branch out into the world of music this weekend, when it celebrates the arrival of Christmas by staging Handel’s Messiah in two evening performances. The National Portrait Gallery’s Portrait Choir will be giving their first ever public concerts at the Gallery after opening hours when they perform Handel’s Bible-inspired oratorio and Christmas concert favourite in the Victorian galleries on the evenings of Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 December. The National Portrait Gallery is one of London’s most popular galleries, located just off Trafalgar Square in the West End. For more about the gallery and other events and exhibitions in the area, see LondonTown, where you can also find the most up-to-date listing and booking information on London hotels, restaurants, shops and bars.

With its popular Amen and Hallelujah  choruses and dramatic retelling of the life of Christ, Messiah will be performed close to the Gallery’s famous portrait of the composer sitting with his copy of the work. The Portrait Choir are part of the first Choir in Residence programme at any museum or gallery in Britain. They will be joined by the Royal College of Music Baroque Orchestra and members of acclaimed ensemble Florilegium. The setting of the Victorian Galleries, surrounded by paintings of grand nineteenth-century figures, adds to the sense of occasion. During the day, visitors will be able to hear members of the Royal College of Music perform free chamber music recitals of works by Handel directly underneath the composer’s portrait. The Portrait Choir is in residence at the National Portrait Gallery at least five times a year and performs a wide repertoire of choral works in gallery spaces which relate to portrait themes,

The Handel portrait, which was painted for Handel’s friend Charles Jennens, was in 1968 the first painting to be acquired by the Gallery by public appeal. A gala performance of the oratorio to raise funds for the portrait was given at the Royal Albert Hall with Dame Joan Sutherland as soprano soloist. It was by Thomas Hudson (oil on canvas, 1756) and shows the great composer in old age and by now blind, with the score of Messiah in front of him open on a table.

LondonTown.com: Pioneering British sculptor celebrated at Tate next month

LONDON, December 04, 2014 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — One of Britain’s most renowned sculptors, Phillip King, will mark his 80th birthday with a display of six works from the 1960s in the Duveen Galleries next month. The exhibition will run from 8th December 2014 to 1st February 2015 and will showcase the work of a man who changed the face of British sculpture. For information on this and other exhibitions at the Tate Britain and Tate Modern, London’s two groundbreaking art galleries, see LondonTown.com, where you will also find updates and information on numerous other exhibitions, events and displays, as well as news on all hotels in London, restaurants, shops and sights.

King was a pioneer. His dissatisfaction with figurative, expressionistic sculpture of the 1950s, and his exposure to the new American painting in the 1960s, led him to experiment with abstraction, construction, material and colour. The display will include key works from Tate’s collection made during this decade, including Genghis Khan 1963 and the important loan of Rosebud 1962 (private collection), his first coloured sculpture using fibreglass. Influenced by Matisse, King was a pioneer of colour as well as material, and this rich combination of materials, techniques, forms and colour enabled King to create sculpture detached from conventional, figurative ideas. King also deferred from tradition by choosing to place his works directly on the floor, occupying a space alongside the viewer, rather than on plinths.

King was born in Tunisia in 1934 and came to England in 1945. In 1957, he studied sculpture at Saint Martin’s School of Art before working as an assistant to Henry Moore. He soon became influenced by developments in American art and began moving towards new abstraction in sculpture. In 1990 King was made Professor Emeritus of the Royal College and was the president of the Royal Academy from 1999-2004. In 2010 he received the International Sculpture Center’s Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award. He lives and works in London.
