Take your seat at the most rarefied salon in London, with Quintessentially’s Art Patron Programme.

There comes a time in everyone’s life when we become more than happy to receive monogrammed hankies – or yes, even socks – as Christmas gifts. But these are still mere expediency at best, one up from a Private Eye annual or Liberty bath set. Wouldn’t you like to present a gift that bequeaths knowledge, culture, philanthropy and exclusivity instead? If you have an art buff in your life, show some thought that counts and gift them membership of the Quintessentially Art Patron Programme today.

The extensive schedule includes curator and artist-led tours of landmark exhibitions, art fairs and even private collections. But Quintessentially’s Art Patron Programme also embraces design, finely crafted jewellery, style and costumery. 

Key to the programme are the curator-led previews of the city’s smash-hit shows, and intimate salons where members can engage with many of London’s most inspiring creatives. You’ll tour the smash-hit shows before the crowds descend, including the forthcoming Modigliani at Tate Modern, figurative extravaganzas “From Life” at the Royal Academy and “All Too Human” at Tate Britain, Peter Doig’s exhibition at Michael Werner Gallery, the London Art Fair, and Andreas Gursky’s photographic retrospective at the Hayward. 

You can also get an insight into creative London life with a studio visit to Philip and Charlotte Colbert, and see jewellery designer Rosa de la Cruz’s personal art collection. Informal lunchtime talks with artists and fashion designers take place regularly at stimulating restaurants – we have one such occasion coming up soon at Park Chinois. 

So it’s the ideal itinerary for the Renaissance man or woman in your life. After all, “the noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding,” said Leonardo da Vinci – that and outsmarting your fellow culture vultures around the dinner table, naturally.

The Programme is offering a special Christmas gift rate in the run-up to holidays, with 10% off memberships if you sign up between the Christmas to New Year period November 15th 2017 –January 5th 2018.

Part of each Membership is donated to the charity Children and the Arts, to help disadvantaged children experience high-quality art education.
