Bridgewater House is a townhouse located at 14 Cleveland Row in the St James's area of London, England. It is a Grade I listed building.HistoryThe earliest known house on the site was Berkshire House, built in about 1626-27 for Thomas Howard, second son of the Earl of Suffolk and Master of the Horse to Charles I of England when he was Prince of Wales. Howard was later created Earl of Berkshire.After being occupied by Parliamentarian troops in the English Civil War, used for the Portuguese Embassy, and lived in by Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon, the house was lived in by Charles II's mistress Barbara Villiers, who was made Duchess of Cleveland in 1670, following which the house was known as Cleveland House. She refaced the old house and added new wings. After being owned for some years by a speculator, the house was sold in 1700 to John Egerton, 3rd Earl of Bridgewater, after which it passed by inheritance until 1948.Cleveland House was re-designed in the Palazzo style by Sir Charles Barry in 1840. The rebuilding was completed and renamed in 1854 for Lord Ellesmere, heir of the 3rd Duke of Bridgewater. It is built in Bath stone with a slate roof in three storeys with a basement.
Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in London and one of its Royal Parks. The park is the largest of four that form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, via Hyde Park Corner and Green Park past the main entrance to Buckingham Palace and on through Saint James's Park to Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall. The park is divided by the Serpentine and the Long Water.The park is contiguous with Kensington Gardens which are often assumed to be part of Hyde Park; Kensington Gardens has been separate since 1728, when Queen Caroline divided them. Hyde Park covers 142 hectares (350 acres) and Kensington Gardens covers 111 hectares (275 acres), giving a total area of 253 hectares (625 acres), making their combined area larger than the Principality of Monaco (196ha), though smaller than the Bois de Boulogne in Paris (845 hectares, or 2090 acres), New York City's Central Park (341ha), and Dublin's Phoenix Park (707 hectares, or 1,750 acres). To the southeast, outside the park, is Hyde Park Corner. During daylight, the two parks merge seamlessly into each other but Kensington Gardens closes at dusk and Hyde Park remains open throughout the year from 5 a.m. until midnight.

Specialising in Modern European and British Master Prints, the gallery was founded
in 1968 by William Weston and is owned and personally directed by him. William Weston's
approach to art dealing reflects his academic background in art history at Cambridge University

During more than four decades the gallery has built a worldwide reputation for its expertise
and the exceptional quality of works exhibited and offered for private sale. Private collectors,
corporate clients and more than fifty museums and public galleries across the world have
acquired works from the gallery.
The gallery displays a wide range of Modern artists throughout the year at our Albemarle Street
premises as well as exhibiting at international art fairs in London, New York, Maastricht.
William Weston Gallery has always been based in Albemarle Street, close to Bond Street
and the Royal Academy, at the heart of the fine art district in London's West End. For more
than twenty five years the gallery has occupied a corner site on Albemarle Street and the
Royal Arcade, the historic 19th century covered arcade of shops leading to Bond Street which
was first made famous by Queen Victoria in the 1890's.
“Start a collection was conceived by us in 2000 to provide a platform on which a first-time buyer could make a purchase with confidence.
That defining moment proved to be a building block for many now established collections and numerous new friendships.
For that reason more than any other, Start a Collection remains an eagerly awaited event in our exhibition calendar both for our clients and for ourselves.”
Works may be reserved ahead of time, but priority is given to buyers in the gallery for the first hour of the opening day.

Elisabetta Cipriani – Jewellery by Contemporary Artists is an invite to the most innovative and challenging living international sculptors and painters to create wearable sculptures with the use of precious metals and stones. It is the first time that these artists have approached jewellery establishing parallels with their artistic disciplines and poetics.
The design of each project starts from a sketch created by the artist, whilst specialised goldsmiths based in Europe or the artists themselves take care of the production. The final result is a portable small sculpture, revealing the most intimate level of the artist: this is Art in Jewellery. The jewels created are unique or in a limited edition of 12 and are always addressed to art lovers but also to people who desire to wear something unique.
Since 2009 the gallery is collaborating with: Atelier van Lieshout, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Enrico Castellani, Giorgio Vigna, Giuseppe Penone, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Jannis Kounellis, Kendell Geers, Rebecca Horn, Tatsuo Miyajima, Tom Sachs and Wim Delvoye.
A selection of the gallery projects is included in worldwide Museum’s collections and exhibitions.
The gallery participates at PAD London (October), Design Miami (December) and Design Miami/Basel (June).
Since May 2011 the jewellery is permanently displayed in a room designed specifically to host these special sculptures at Sprovieri Gallery, London.
The Fine Art Society was founded in 1876 by a group of knowledgeable art collectors. Comprising of a five storey town house in Mayfair, it is the oldest gallery in London. Since its inception the gallery has always championed and worked directly with living artists, giving The Camden Town Group their first show and holding historic shows that have since entered the canon of art history. It is at this location that Whistler invented the concept of a solo exhibition and introduced evenly spaced installations against pale walls – a precursor for every contemporary gallery today.
In recent years the gallery has embraced the contemporary arts along side it's twentieth and nineteenth century heritage and increased cross-cultural links, particularly in Asia and Australia. Exciting artists have joined the gallery’s core stable and these are complimented by internationally recognized artists who participate in critically engaged survey shows.
