Elusive but increasingly high regarded wines from the Czech Republic were on show aplenty at the Czech Embassy in London’s Notting Hill late this April, with a ‘Wine Day 2022’ held showcasing ten wineries from the nation. And, marking the event this year an ambitious new project was kicked off along with Cordoba Worldwide, to put wines from the country on map in the UK.
An exclusive partnership has been struck between the UK Embassy for the Czech Republic, Czech Trade and Cordoba Worldwide to develop of food and beverage trade from the ‘V4’ nation within the UK.
DAVID BELLAMY (born 1943) prodigious ‘plein air’ artist, author, guide, and teacher, has won international acclaim for his mastery of watercolour.
His emotions are stirred by mountains, the absolute silence of the Greenland wilderness, the peaks of Spitsbergen and Lofoten Islands, ‘mind- blowing’ scenery of the Egyptian White Desert, encounters with walrus, musk-ox, and polar bears in the snows of Svalbard, as ‘ profound and humbling’ as the elephant, lion, leopard, and rhinoceros of Africa.
Connoisseurs and collectors of the Art Establishment have looked on sporting art with condescension. Now they honour Sir Alfred Munnings as one of the two greatest painters of equestrian portraits, and the joys of rural life, in the history of English, or even world art. His reputation surges ever higher, his work fetches prices in the millions, up there with Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and David Hockney.
Best known for portraits of glossy thoroughbreds, often with their owners, jockeys, and grooms, Munnings was as passionate about the English countryside as the Horse.
