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.
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.
Hormazd Narielwalla - King and Crown
London-based artist Hormazd Narielwalla combines collage, drawing and painting to create his bold, geometric assemblages. Composed on a background of vintage tailoring patterns, his intricate pictures tell stories of identity, memory, migration, and ceremony.
In association with Ackerman Studios, 45 Park Lane is proud to present a body of Narielwalla’s work to commemorate HM King Charles III’s coronation. This celebratory series is a visual feast of abstracted imagery that references this historic occasion’s singing and music-making, paying homage to our new King.
Norman Seeff photography
The walls of The Bar & Lounge at Hotel Bel Air are covered with iconic black & white imagery, by film and photography legend Norman Seeff. The larger-than-life installations add an eye-catching dimension and vibrant energy to the space. These stunning images are the result of several exclusive photo sessions from the 1980s, in which Seeff captured artists and innovators such Cher, Tina Turner and Steve Jobs in unique, unguarded moments. Each image gives the sense of a story revealed.
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.
