I am delighted to be able to share this recording of A Victorian Eye, a play written by Rory Fellowes about George Richmond’s son (my great great grandfather) William Blake Richmond RA, the creator of the mosaics of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, UK, among many very gorgeous portraits and other large scale commissions. I had the honour of seeing this play in the flesh in 2013 and recommend it highly for a fabulous, witty and poignant insight into the life and mind of William Blake Richmond, an artist struggling, as we all do to this day (!), with decisions about commissions, clients and intricacies of the works themselves. As well as his personal life.
The play was staged in August 2013 at Jermyn Street Theatre, Piccadilly London, UK.
