To celebrate Coplestone Warre Bampfylde’s life and his importance to the history of Hestercombe and the South West, the largest survey of his original artworks and objects ever seen in one place has been brought together.
Born 300 years ago, on 28th February 1720, C. W. Bampfylde was a talented and multifaceted ‘amateur’ artist. As the former owner of Hestercombe, he designed and built the now restored C18th landscape garden, in addition to producing a swathe of landscape and topographical sketches, paintings and etchings both at Hestercombe and throughout the South West.
This archival exhibition will open to the public on 1st March and run for a year in conjunction with several other contemporary exhibitions and many events exploring the fascinating life of this influential person as part of Bampfylde 300
