A new exhibition has just opened showcasing the history of the Coventry family from the turn of the 17th century through to the present day.
Visitors can see works by famous artists including Allan Ramsay and Sir Joshua Reynolds and takes people on a 400 year journey from Thomas, 1st Baron Coventry through to the current 13th Earl, George William Coventry.
“I have been keen to curate an exhibition of portraits of the Coventry family for many years and I’m thrilled that it has come together this year,” said Amy Forster-Smith, head of visitor experience. “We are very lucky to be working with lots of partners to deliver the exhibition, including photographer Tim Barrow, artist Antony Bridge, the Coventry family and the Croome Estate Trust. The Tapestry Room will be filled and gleaming with artworks from across the centuries – it looks stunning. All of the team are very excited to hear visitor’s reactions to the exhibition.”
Many of the other works have come from Croome’s own collection and on loan from private collections. Alongside the historic portraits is a brand new commission from Malvern contemporary artist Antony Bridge and contemporary artworks of the landscape of Croome by Lincoln Taber, a member of the Coventry family.
Visitors can see the exhibition until May 2020.
