Exhibition Hire

The Sue Lee Trust, in conjunction with the Hilliard Society, are delighted to offer this unique opportunity to display this facsinating and informative exhibition at your venue.

The Very Best of Contemporary Miniature Art

This small Exhibition contains 57 paintings from the Sue Lee Collection and is presented complete for display with a narrative detailing the development from the beginnings of miniature art through to the modern day.

The selected paintings, in various mediums, illustrate the exceptional skills required to produce this specialist art form. Because of modern facilities the level of skills illustrated exceed those achievable by the old masters such as Nicholas Hilliard and Rowland Lockey. Contemporary miniature art is enjoying a rise in popularity and this exhibition extols all the virtues.

The cases are locked and come with their own stands to bring the exhibition up to viewing height. Over head lighting is provided, requiring a 13 amp power supply.
