Exhibitions

The Clarence Bicknell Association has provided assistance in putting on exhibitions in Bordighera and elsewhere.

Here are some photographs of the exhibition curated by Susie Bicknell in the Chiesa Anglicana, Bordighera, 8-22 October 2017. The 2017 Parmurelu d’Oru prize was awarded by the Jury of the Descu Rundu to Marcus Bicknell for his support of the Museo Bicknell, for promoting the town of Bordighera in the international media and the scientific community and for promoting world wide in four language versions the documentary film The Marvels of Clarence Bicknell. This exhibition celebrates the award. Clarence Bicknell is best known for his meticulous recording of the thousands of prehistoric engravings in the Mont Bégo area. Clarence’s great-grand-nephew Marcus (born 1948) and his wife Susie have chosen to focus this exhibition on a less well-known side of Clarence: his artistic and design talents, and his greatest passion… flowers and plants.  The inspiration they gave him is revealed in the hand-painted pages of the vellum-bound albums he made for family and friends. Seven of these albums are in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge University, England; illustrations from these albums were for the first time in this exhibition.
