GUSTO, AN EXHIBITION BY NANCY CADOGAN AT THE KEATS-SHELLEY HOUSE
The Keats-Shelley House is hosting a temporary exhibition, Gusto, by British artist Nancy Cadogan. Click here to watch the preview.
Gusto features sixteen oil paintings inspired by the great Romantic poets and is named after William Hazlitt’s essay ‘On Gusto’, written in 1817. Cadogan created Gusto while in lockdown and what emerged was a body of work that strives to give hope out of the global health and economic crisis.
Nancy Cadogan's works, described by The Evening Standard Magazine as “heaven on canvas”, are vibrant and vital and, by virtue of her love of Italy, of literature, and of Romanticism, find a natural home in the Keats-Shelley House.
Gusto was presented in London on 21-22 October 2020 before travelling to Rome, where the exhibition will run until 31 May 2021.
