This series of six tapestries, exploring Perry’s fascination with taste, was inspired by Hogarth’s ‘A Rake’s Progress’. The tapestries will hang in six adjoining rooms at Temple Newsam alongside fine art, furniture, wallpaper, ceramics and bed hangings from the 19th century, sparking further debate about class and taste through time in British society.

If you were lucky enough to hear Grayson Perry's 2012 talk for Leeds Art Fund on the same subject, this will be an unmissable chance to see the works for yourself.

We will enjoy a private visit to the exhibition with an introduction by Nigel Walsh, Curator of Contemporary Art at Leeds Art Gallery, followed by a glass of wine.
