The Art Collection @ Castell Malgwyn

fine dining restaurant in pembrokeshire

 The Art Collection @ Castell Malgwyn has been much remarked upon and comprises two separate groups, namely the Royal Academy collection which does not pretend to be anything other than what it is, namely pictures and sculptures by Royal Academicians and other exhibitors at the Summer Exhibition which we find attractive. Royal Academicians have the right to exhibit, without going before the selection comittee, up to six works each year. Some of the pictures hanging here by Royal Academicians are among those six and our experience, reflecting our years as owners of a commercial art gallery, was always that they wanted their very best work in that particular show.

The other collection is one based on the Camden Town Group, which has been described by Dr. Wendy Baron as a "vital movement in British art inspired above all by Sickert", which was formed as a consequence of the earlier association of artists, the Fitzroy Street Group founded by Sickert in 1907 and was the progenitor of the much larger London group founded in 1913 and active still to this day. The collection numbers over 30 works, mainly by the major names but also with pictures by some of their most important acolytes, sometimes described as the "Sickert women". Ranging from an unusual Sickert of London to a design by Wyndham Lewis for a pot lid, they provide a small but comprehensive survey of the full range and variety of styles that are subsumed under the rubric "Camden Town Painters".
