A new range has arrived for the Victorian Kitchen restoration and a new selection of artworks has gone on display in the Art Russe Gallery.

The Victorian Range Arrives

Palace House Manager, Mr Morley, has been searching far and wide to find a working Victorian range for our Victorian kitchen project. And he finally found one in York!

The range has now made its way south and arrived in the Victorian kitchen at Palace House. It is a Carronette solid fuel, double oven range, circa 1880. The next few days will see the building of the range and flue as it has arrived in several pieces!

Lord Montagu’s cook has been busy practising Victorian recipes, such as consommé and cakes, which will be cooked on the range once it is working.

Art Russe For Spring

We are pleased to announce a new selection of the Art Russe collection is now on display in Palace House.

With spring crocus and daffodils blooming just outside the windows the new selection complements the scene with colourful still-life paintings of flowers, people and places.

A team lead by Pafo Gallieri have been working hard to get the new art work installed and ready for the visitors. Thankfully, the team came armed with buckets of patience as final decisions were made over the positioning of the paintings!

The Art Russe collection is headed by entrepreneur and philanthropist Andrey Filatov and aims to increase awareness of 20th century Russian art to an international audience. The Beaulieu collection will include artworks from the late 19th century to the 1990s which most fully reflects the main stages of development of the Russian school of art.

Keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels for regular updates on the Victorian kitchen project.
