The Empress and the Gardener

Our first time working at Hampton Court Historic Royal Palaces; bespoke showcases from design to installation. Qwerk combined elements of hardwood joinery with custom metalwork to display the never before seen collection of The Empress and the Gardener.

The exhibit marks the 300th anniversary of Capability Brown’s birth. The Empress and the Gardener – exploring the famous English gardener’s surprising influence on the Russian Empress, Catherine the Great, who collected watercolours of the gardens featuring images of the celebrated landscapes Brown worked on across England.

Inside Hampton Court Palace, people viewing one of the showcases displaying contemporary portraits of Capability Brown, the Empress Catherine and King George III
