Another exhibition from DAVID SWIFT, known for his SURREAL TOYS. The exhibition is held this time in beautiful CORTONA at the Palazzo Ferretti on Via Nazionale, the main corso and opposite the tourist information office. This show features a twist on a doll’s house. Having been commissioned to make doll’s houses to commemorate the arrival of a friend’s grandchildren, David decided to make an Italian version….with the ubiquitous cinquecento parked round the back in trompe l’oeuil, and an angel sleeping in the four-poster bed, (her wings laid by the side) The cat,dog and parrot sit by the woodstove, and the remains of dinner sit on the kitchen table!

The exhibition is shared with Alba Polverini’s delightful flower paintings and runs until 31st July. 10-ish ’til 8-ish. Opening Party 6 p.m. Friday16th!
