Edinburgh, Scotland – This exhibition will celebrate the lives of Bobby and Natalie Bevan, and the works which hung on the walls of their home, Boxted House in Essex, which became a gathering place for a wide range of creative people after the Second World War.  Boxted House was the home of Bobby and Natalie Bevan from 1946 until 1974. Bobby was the son of the artists Robert Bevan and Stanislawa de Karlowska, and was Chairman of the leading advertising agency S. H. Benson Ltd. The painter and ceramicist Natalie Denny, a renowned beauty and hostess, modelled for many artists, most famously for Mark Gertler.
