Nature’s champions

Champions of the natural world from the 19th century to the present day will be celebrated in a new exhibition touring three National Trust locations in September this year, including Shropshire’s Attingham Park.
The exhibition, Faces of Change: Nature’s Champions, is a partnership between the National Trust and the National Portrait Gallery, drawing on portraits from the gallery’s collection. It will focus on individuals who have transformed the way we perceive, experience, and aim to protect the natural world.
The exhibition includes outstanding paintings, sculptures, photographs and recent commissions. Gardeners from Gertrude Jekyll to Bob Flowerdew will feature, as well as key figures of the Romantic Movement such as William Wordsworth, and early radicals and reformers William Morris and Octavia Hill.
More recent figures include animal welfare and agriculture campaigners Linda McCartney and Prince Charles, and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough.
