Royal Pavilion & Museums
Built for the Prince Regent, later King George IV, in stages between 1787 and 1823 the Royal Pavilion is remarkable for its exotic oriental appearance both inside and out. This magnificent royal pleasure palace was revered by fashionable Regency society and is still a distinctive landmark for vibrant Brighton & Hove today. The Royal Pavilion is also home to some of the finest collections and examples of the Chinoiserie style in Britain.
Items on display in the Regency Colour exhibition include colour materials, charts and books from the 18th century and early 19th century, beautiful wallpaper fragments from the Royal Pavilion, and objects such as a Regency artist’s paint box and jars of pigments. Also on show are prints and a new film piece created for Regency Colour by contemporary artist Stig Evans.
