New York, New York : A ‘Time Travel’ Virtual Tour of New York

A personal ‘virtual’ tour in which we unashamedly cherry-pick the artistic highlights and icons of New York. We will consider the influence of ‘new  money’ on art patronage and track the move of fashionable society from Washington Square, so beloved by Henry James and Edith Wharton, in the relentless move uptown. Digital photography will be used to full effect with visual collages and exquisite details to re-create the atmosphere of the brownstones and high society clubs of Gramercy Park, the Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall, the grand hotels and nightclubs, the 21 Club and the Speakeasy, the building of the great art collections including the Metropolitan Museum and the Guggenheim

Whether you know and love New York or maybe have never visited, join me
and have fun discovering more about the personalities of the artists,
designers, patrons and social climbers who shaped this extraordinary and
ever-changing city. The aim will be to create the sense of ‘being there’ and to
capture the vibrancy and energy of the city.Click here for the Booking Form
