The National Trust purchase John Dyer painting of the maze at Glendurgan Garden in Cornwall

John Dyer’s painting of Glendurgan has been purchased by the National Trust to be hung on permanent display at Glendurgan Gardens. Both the trust and the artist John Dyer are delighted. You will be able to see the painting at the visitors entrance to the gardens from mid April 2005.

"It is a very special painting of one of the most entertaining, visually exciting and historically important gardens in Cornwall, and for the National Trust and the team at Glendurgan to be so inspired by it that they wish to own it is not only very exciting, but a real honour." John Dyer 2005.

Steven Porter, Head Gardener at Glendurgan says:

"We were mesmerised by the painting when we first saw it and we are over the moon to now have it on display at Glendurgan. It will prove to be popular with our visitors, and hopefully be an image that people will want to take home with them. We are also using the painting to kick-start a collaboration with King Charles Primary School in Falmouth, of which John is a governor. We aim to develop the pupil's interest in plants, gardening and the environment. It is hoped that this painting will inspire the children from this and other schools to paint and take an active and creative interest in the garden."
