~ John Pawson// Waddesdon Bench

John Pawson's Waddesdon Bench is installed as part of a major outdoor exhibition of contemporary sculpture at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire. The exhibition is being mounted in collaboration with Christie's, as a sculptural counterpoint to Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin's painting, 'Boy Building a House of Cards', recently acquired by Waddesdon.
