The Gallery at Windsor and The Royal Academy of Arts jointly hosted a Private Luncheon in honor of Rose Wylie RA at the Royal Academy of Arts in London
On Thursday, October 17, 2019, The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, Windsor co-founder and Creative Director for The Gallery at Windsor with Christopher Le Brun, President and Tim Marlow, Artistic Director, Royal Academy of Arts, jointly hosted a seated luncheon in honor of Rose Wylie RA and her forthcoming exhibition at The Gallery at Windsor. The event was held in the General Assembly Room at the Royal Academy of Arts and attended by 30 VIP guests including gallerists, curators and representatives of the international media.
British artist Rose Wylie’s exhibition will be the third annual exhibition at Windsor presented in collaboration with the Royal Academy as part of a three-year curatorial partnership launched in 2018 and the first exhibition in the program by a female artist. The exhibition will open at The Gallery at Windsor, Vero Beach, Florida on January 28, 2019 and run until April 30, 2020. Entitled “Let it Settle”, the exhibition at Windsor has been organized by Rodolphe von Hofmannsthal for David Zwirner, and curated by Jari-Juhani Lager.
Wylie will present a group of paintings and drawings that reflect her interest in popular culture, deftly merging political, social, and autobiographical elements. The exhibition includes subjects as diverse as the historic British monarchy and the imaginary character Snow White, memorial crests and castles.
The show will provide an important opportunity to showcase the artist’s work in the United States, introducing her unique style to an even wider audience.
There will be a fully illustrated book published by Windsor Press and Royal Academy Enterprises, including an interview with RA Artistic Director Tim Marlow.
The program for the three-year curatorial partnership between the Royal Academy of Arts and The Gallery at Windsor which has previously included exhibitions by Grayson Perry RA and Michael Craig-Martin RA has been selected by The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, Windsor co-founder and Creative Director for The Gallery at Windsor, Christopher Le Brun, President of the Royal Academy, and Tim Marlow, Artistic Director of the Royal Academy.

About the Royal Academy of Arts
The Royal Academy of Arts was founded by a group of artists and architects, under the patronage of King George III, in 1768. It has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded charity led by eminent artists and architects whose purpose is to promote the creation, understanding and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.
The Royal Academy has launched a new campus as part of the celebrations of its 250th anniversary year. Following a transformative redevelopment, designed by the internationally-acclaimed architect Sir David Chipperfield RA and supported by the National Lottery, the new Royal Academy of Arts reveals more of the elements that make the RA unique – sharing with the public historic treasures from its Collection, the work of its Royal Academicians and the Royal Academy Schools, and its role as a center for learning and debate about art and architecture – alongside its world-class exhibitions program. royalacademy.org.uk
