The John Scott Collection: Truth, Beauty, Power: The Designs of Dr. Christopher Dresser

11 September - 2 October 2014

The Fine Art Society will present a selling exhibition of exceptional designs by Dr Christopher Dresser (1834-1904), widely regarded as Britain’s first independent industrial designer and one of the most influential figures in nineteenth-century design. Drawn from the John Scott Collection, the exhibition will include a large number of rare and important pieces that have been exhibited in museum shows worldwide, including Christopher Dresser: A Design Revolution at the V&A, London (2004).

The exhibition will showcase Dresser’s remarkably broad and eclectic output, which include metalwork, furniture, glass, cast iron, chromolithographic books and ceramics designed for some of the most prestigious manufacturers of the Industrial Revolution, including Wedgwood, Minton and Coalbrookdale.
