Ashmolean Museum, Oxford  |  July to October 2015


Following a most successful exhibition of Adam Buck's work at the Ashmolean Museum of Art & Archaeology, Oxford, England, from July to October 2015, a further exhibition of Adam Buck's work took place in Adam’s home town, at the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, Ireland from February to April 2016.

The Ashmolean was delighted to offer a first venue for this exhibition about an artist whose work is not only immensely appealing but who is by no means as well-known as he ought to be. There has never been a serious exhibition of his work and, apart from a few brief articles in specialist journals, little has been written about him.

The beauty and elegance of the exhibits included a wide collection of his many miniatures and portraits 'in the small' as well as examples of his prints and his decorations on china.  The exhibition appealed not only appeal to collectors and specialists of British ceramics, prints and watercolours but also to those with an interest in the Regency period, royal scandal and the world of Jane Austen.
