Applying his unique eye for exceptional craftsmanship, Sassoon has collaborated with the spectacular Parham House in West Sussex, to stage a panorama of new works by his celebrated contemporar y ar tists. In a period without ar t fairs, the project fosters a dialogue between the precious objects and the textures of the interior architectural features, whilst the gardens in bloom provide a backdrop to a fur ther selection of vibrant new works of ar t. Reflecting the rich collecting spirit of the house, which includes one of the finest and most impor tant collections of 17th centur y embroider y in the countr y, the display intelligently introduces contemporar y ceramics, glass, and silver to the antique textiles, furniture, and paintings. Issue One ‘Adrian Sassoon at Parham, A House of Histor y’ is the first of three distinct catalogues which introduce the viewer to different aspects of the house, the garden and the collection. To view a specially commissioned film by Director Freddie Leyden and catalogues featuring available works of ar t, please visit: adriansassoon-viewingroom.com/Parham A selection of the contemporar y works of ar t will be re-displayed at Parham when the house reopens to visitors in late June. www.parhaminsussex.co.uk

“Parham House was restored one hundred years ago to remain an Elizabethan wonder without intrusions of subsequent centuries but with the finest technical ser vices underneath and out of sight. To this day the sense of its age and appreciation of the past is how the house is maintained. Without removing furniture and objects, we have placed an outstanding selection of new and recent work by our international artists, as a collector might do, whilst remaining true to the Parham spirit of the un-changing past being the foundation for today’s living.” Adrian Sassoon
