Wonderful day off at Welbeck with Tim Wannacott where we were entertained at the new Portland Gallery. Its an easy 40 minute drive north for a great day out at the best farm shop, popular garden centre and Harley gallery showing modern art and artifax, No charge for parking and no entrance fees. A great day out.
The Portland Collection includes outstanding examples from some of the most highly regarded artists of each period, and includes one of the largest privately-owned and significant collections of British portraits and miniatures.
[the exhibits are] idiosyncratic, interesting, unusual, and cast light on family history, art history, and, well, just history in general
