Capability Brown logo NEWThe Capability Brown tercentenary in 2016 will celebrate the landscape designer’s birth 300 years previously.

This site draws together the impetus nationally for events, talks and explorations (both physical and intellectual) of landscape and place.

It is the intention that work on assembling documentary sources will start in December 2015 ready for an unveiling of a clay work by the summer of 2016.

September – identification of key advisors to feedback on the process

October – planning dates for ‘outreach’ modelling events – taking the developing clay to be worked overlooking the landscapes as Brown would have viewed

December – viewing the important portraits

February 17th – an evening talk to The Petworth Society

March 6th – NT Uppark – outreach event, all day – working on the clay head in a landscape visited and planned by Brown but with much later design by Repton and others.

March 31st – Winchester Discovery Centre/Hampshire Cultural Trust – working on the clay head for the unveiling of the Capability Brown: Master of the Landscape and Making the Landscape exhibitions. Public view during late afternoon.

June 22 – unveiling of the first bronze, at Lenses on a Landscape Genius EXHIBITION, The Building Centre, Store Street WC1E; open with free entry until END AUGUST

July 7 – Stowe House Discovery Centre – unveiling of the terracotta, which will be on display over the summer to visitors.

Talks: London 11 July, Stowe 7th July

One thought on “When?

  1. Dear Sir/Mrs.,
    When or has the statue of Capability been completed please? If where is it please? Thank you.
    Yours Sincerely,
    Mrs. Sanders.
