Picturesque Movement – In Search for Creativity
|Lady Emily’s Tower, influenced by the Picturesque movement, was originally built as a painting studio. It was a place to frame the views and enhance the beauty of the landscape.|
Ten buildings now scattered around the estate carry the same purpose. These ten buildings are a combination of galleries and painting studios that both create different environments to perceive and create art. They range from being fully opened to the outdoors to partially or fully enclosed. Some are elevated above the ground and some are more hidden. Visitors can wander around the estate and fully immerse themselves in each of these ten unique studios and the surrounding nature.
