IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Immerse yourself in art
Art has a unique power all of its own, orchestrated by a myriad of outstanding artists from diverse genres. It has the capacity to fascinate and inspire us, offer fresh perspectives, and spark intense emotions. In celebration of this, our hotels act as living canvases.
45 Park Lane
Art is deeply embedded in our DNA at 45 Park Lane. The hotel is gallery for groundbreaking British artists, a place where you can view both ever-changing exhibitions and our own permanent collection. Our art concierge will be happy to be your personal guide.
From Dalí to Warhol, many of the greatest artists and thinkers of our age have found inspiration within the walls of Le Meurice, and now it’s your turn. Experience our playful sense of creativity by taking an art treasure trail of our most prized works – expect the unexpected.
An innate sense of Italian style and flair is evident from the moment you arrive at Hotel Eden. Fashion illustrator Andrea Ferolla has carefully curated an eye-catching art collection at La Liberia, inspired by life at the hotel. We’re also introducing a series of art workshops and temporary exhibitions to look forward to.
Read all about it
Art insights come in many forms at Dorchester Collection Moments – be it highlights of the Louvre with Sabine de La Rochefoucauld, our pick of LA’s leading commercial art galleries, or explore a roundup of museums in Rome’s Villa Borghese – we’re always adding fresh stories to pique your interest.
Follow in famous footsteps
With lively dialogue and juicy anecdotes, follow in the footsteps of legendary artists with our exclusive guided tours through Paris and Rome. ‘Picasso’s Montmartre’ launched last year and ‘Rodin – Love and Torment’ launches soon, followed by ‘Caravaggio – Rebel and Rome’.
Many of our suites have their own unique tales to tell and all have a distinctive artistic flair. Some are inspired by those who made us their home second home, such as Dalí at Le Meurice, others highlight the artists who created them, including The Oliver Messel Suite at The Dorchester and the Paul R Williams Suite at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Timothy White – Icons
Widely regarded as one of the most important figures in contemporary photography, Timothy White is truly a legend in the making, so we’re delighted to share some of his intimate portraits of Hollywood icons here in the lobby.
White is the photographer of choice for the highest echelon of Hollywood and international celebrities, resulting in a globally-renowned portfolio. He’s also shot some of the most memorable covers for publications such as Vanity Fair, Vogue, Esquire and Rolling Stone, along with iconic movie posters for the biggest Hollywood studios.
Sir Peter Blake: The art of travel and a life of artistic expression
Sir Peter Blake, a leading figure in the Pop Art movement, is best known for his striking collages infused with images from popular culture. In collaboration with the prestigious Waddington Custot, we present a selection of his groundbreaking works, which captures the spirit of the artist’s decades-long career. Coinciding with Blake’s birthday, the exhibition celebrates all things Sir Peter Blake recognising his enormous contribution to the art world for over seven decades.
Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.
