The Art of Bedlam: Richard Dadd

The Art of Bedlam: Richard Dadd, at Watts Gallery (summer 2015) was the first major exhibition in more than 40 years to explore the life and career of Richard Dadd (1817 – 1886), one of the most fascinating artists of the Victorian era.  The exhibition brought together some of the most important works created Dadd throughout his life – along with sketches, works on paper and archive material – to encourage a reassessment of the artist.

 

Wigwam secured extensive national coverage for the exhibition, including   The Times, Daily Telegraph , The Guardian, The Observer, The Spectator and BBC Radio 4 Front Row.

 

The exhibition received 20,000 visitors.

 

“Working with Tamsin and the team at Wigwam PR is a real pleasure.  They always go the extra mile to ensure Watts Gallery’s press campaigns have the widest impact possible and they are always on hand to offer expert advice and guidance on all matters of Public Relations.  No challenge is too big or too small and everything is delivered with grace and creative flair.”
