Simply Folk Art

(Limited space available, booking on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis)

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting an evening talk with Annelise Hone, Collections Manager at Compton Verney, home of the nation’s largest public collection of antique British Folk Art.

Having recognised a growth of interest in the popularity of the genre, the museum was inspired to successfully apply for funding to renovate their Folk Art Galleries, completed in 2018, with the express ambition of increasing the understanding and knowledge of their diverse collection.


The evening at Robert Young Antiques has been planned to coincide with our 20th Annual Exhibition of Antique Folk Art and will be hosted at our Battersea Gallery. The talk is scheduled to last for about an hour, followed by an informal Q&A and discussion.Annelise will be discussing the growing interest and popularity of Folk Art, the newly curated Galleries and the developing recognition of Folk Art, whilst highlighting selected works and the narrative surrounding them. 

Guests will be offered complimentary drinks. Admission is free but a small optional donation to Compton Verney would be much appreciated.
