Beauty and Balance at the Fitzwilliam Museum
14 August 2015 - 3 April 2016, Fitzwilliam Museum
In the first of two displays at the Fitzwilliam Museum key arrangements from Kettle’s Yard’s house are re-created in the Glaisher Gallery
These groupings of art works and other objects reflect the founder of Kettle’s Yard, Jim Ede’s belief in the importance of creating balance in spaces to enhance the beauty of the works of art and objects that they contain. Paintings and sculptures by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Ben Nicholson, Joan Miró and Christopher Wood are on display. Even the lemon sitting on a pewter plate forms part of the display.
The Fitzwilliam Museum is free to visit, the Glaisher Gallery is part of the ceramics gallery on the ground floor of the museum.
