Art at Glyndebourne

Posted by Alice Roberton on

At Glyndebourne we are passionate about all forms of art, whether it be a lavish performance, the pure sound of a human voice or an artist’s impression of a practicing orchestra. This passion for art also extends beyond the stage. We work with an exciting range of local and international artists to produce original works, limited edition prints, collectable programme covers and a range of products and gifts.

444. Glyndebourne House 12.07.18

Our Art Gallery has been curated to compliment the Festival 2018 programme and is filled with stunning works from around a dozen artists. From Eileen Cooper OBE, an artist well regarded for her strong and passionate figuration, to the elegant Erté designs which have been applied to an exclusive collection of products, incorporating drawings from our 1980 production of Der Rosenkavalier.

In addition, our online gifts and books & stationery sections of the Glyndebourne Shop offer items as varied as placemats, tea-towels, greetings cards and jigsaw-puzzles.


Throughout this year’s Festival, the Glyndebourne Shop is celebrating the stage and costume design of Erté with an exclusive collection of limited edition products incorporating drawings from the 1980 production of Der Rosenkavalier. Russian-born Romain de Tirtoff was a prominent artist and designer, perhaps best known for his elegant, often Art Deco-inspired, designs. His delicate figures and sophisticated, glamorous designs have been worked into clothing, accessories, homewares and greeting cards for the Der Rosenkavalier by Erté Collection

Eileen Cooper

Having exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, Eileen Cooper became a Royal Academician in 2000 and in 2010 was elected Keeper of the Royal Academy 2011-2017; the first woman in this role since the Academy began in 1768. Her richly diverse images, simultaneously bold and tender, reveal a range of feeling that is both deeply engrossing and readily accessible, making her the perfect artist to capture life at Glyndebourne.

Our range of limited edition screen prints include Cooper’s Solo in Blue and Barefoot Duet; both prints of original woodcuts, showing performers in a vibrant state of physical movement. Solo Noir depicts the jaunty stance of a performer and his shadow whilst Shim Sham Shimmy portrays a veiled dancer.
