The Wallace Collection is a national museum which displays works of art collected in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess. With a collection of 25 new works entitled “The Blue Paintings,” Damien Hirst will become only the second living artist to have a solo show at the museum. Quite a feat. The show begins October 14th, 2009 and runs until January 24th, 2010. Rather pricey though. Prices for receptions with a private view of the Hirst exhibition start at £8,000 + VAT.
