A Symphony of Curves: Geoffrey Preston – A Tradition in Plaster

December 3rd, 2012

A Symphony of Curves ran from August to November 2012 at the wonderful Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery. It featured over fifty objects from small, beautifully modelled relief panels, to a complete (and wildly exuberant!) rococo ceiling.

Design drawings and photographs of some principal commissions were on display, as well as a group of striking geometric sculptures based on the architectural forms known as muqarnas, found in Islamic architecture.

The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) reopened in December 2011 after a £24 million redevelopment. It was named Museum of the Year 2012 by the Art Fund.

“The new RAMM is quite simply a magical place.”
