Boxted House in Boxted, Essex was the home of Bobby and Natalie Bevan from 1947 until 1974. Bobby (1901-1974) was the son of artists Robert Bevan (1865-1925) and Stanislawa de Karlowska (1876-1952) and was Chairman of the advertising agency S. H. Benson Ltd. Natalie Denny (b.1909), a renowned beauty and hostess, modelled for artists including Mark Gertler and Christopher Nevinson. Bobby and Natalie married in 1947. Together they created an exceptional home at Boxted where works by family and friends, such as Walter Sickert, Harold Gilman and Charles Ginner filled the walls and where artist friends, including many associated with East Anglia such as John Nash, Cedric Morris and Lett Haines, gathered. This book celebrates the colourful character of Boxted House, its hosts, its guests and their artistic creations.
