A new commission for The Grand Tour from Clare Twomey.
Lithopanes first became popular in the early 1800’s. When placed in front of a light, their hidden three-dimensional images become visible on the thin porcelain plate.
The future is held in a glow of the past
Illuminated from behind, the porcelain lithopanes will skew the way that we perceive the contemporary. Just as the lives and work of generations before shape modern life at Welbeck, so too will this old technology frame the telling of Clare Twomey’s modern stories from the estate.
