Artwork at The Daffodil
Choosing the artwork for The Daffodil has been tricky. The natural beauty surrounding the hotel is stunning: we chose not to try and replicate it with the hotel's art. Instead, we've sought to select the best of what we like, what makes us smile and what we appreciate.
Bedrooms at The Daffodil
Most of the bedrooms have art from a particular artist and there is quite a wide selection. Alongside artists, we have a room that is dedicated to movies and several that have art inspired by the Twenties. Artists featured in The Daffodil bedrooms include:
...and many more.
The Dining Room at The Daffodil
A selection from the National Portrait Galley. In choosing art for The Dining Room, we thought about those fantasy dinner-guest games – if you could choose three people to dine with, who would you choose?
We limited our selection to people captured by London’s National Portrait Gallery – primarily because the NPG represents the best in portrait paining. The portraits are organised in three rooms: the main room is contemporary, one side room contains portraits from the 1960s, the other, people who made us laugh.
We hope you enjoy the company!
Great Housewives of Art
Leading to The Dining Room, visit out Great Housewives of Art gallery. This collection of 25 new and funny parodies of classic works that show what the wives of great artists were up to while their husbands were busy at their canvases.
The Daffodil corridors contain caricatures by Sue McCartney Snape. Sue has been called the 'master of caricature' and says her paintings illustrate the English social scene. Sue Macartney Snape has had several sell-out exhibitions and her paintings are avidly collected. Between 1994 and 2011 she drew the characters in the Saturday Telegraph Magazine’s celebrated Social Stereotypes column.
We hope you enjoy the art around the hotel as much as we enjoyed choosing it! Don't forget to share any photos you take on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, we'd love to see them!
