The Cabinet Show 2014 

The intimate format of a ‘Cabinet Exhibition’ is ideal for the habit of collecting small treasures. Based on the idea of Cabinet Paintings which originated as far back as the 17th Century, these were small paintings, preparatory drawings, small portraits, relief’s and sculptures, which were produced by some of the greatest artists in history for the private enjoyment of individuals and collectors. These were displayed in specially designed cabinets and eventually many artists produced works specifically for these displays. This exhibition features small paintings, drawings and prints specially commissioned for a modern day version of this custom.
