Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown Sculpture Campaign Takes Off

Laury Dizengremel is on a roll!

Belvoir Castle & Estate Artist-in-Residence

Laury_digital_of_Brown (1)I am so chuffed that the Duchess asked me to be involved in her work to implement lost plans by ‘Capability’ Brown for Belvoir Castle… which led to me creating a Belvoir obelisk indicated by Brown for the Belvoir landscape… which led me to find out there is no statue of Brown in England (I was so informed by leading Brown expert historian John Phibbs)… which has now led me to spearhead a campaign to raise funds for a lifesize bronze sculpture of Brown to be gifted to the nation.

See http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/capability-brown-sculpture/

Our idea was that the people of the nation should gift it – just as public artwork was almost always funded by public subscription in the 18th century. The campaign was started 3 nights ago and has already raised £2,900 of its £50,00 target!
