Friends of the BADA Trust have funded a publication about country house Raynham Hall in Norfolk.
The book ‘Raynham Hall: An English Country House Revealed’ is written by Dr Michael Ridgdill, head of American Friends of British Art, with photographs by Julius Beltrame.
The seat of the Townshend family for nearly 400 years, Raynham Hall is one of England’s first neo-Palladian houses. Work began on the site in 1622, with further extensions and interior design added a century later by eminent architect William Kent, whose work also included Kensington Palace, Chiswick House and Houghton Hall.
Meanwhile, the first Friends of the BADA Trust young dealer networking event this year will take place at Butchoff Antiques on Kensington Church Street on Tuesday, February 6. It follows the first which was held in September at Reindeer Antiques.
It will also continue its programme called ‘At Home with the Dealers’ which is designed to allow attendees a chance to explore BADA dealers’ personal collections and learn about the objects that inspire them.
