Artists at the Savoy

Some wealthy artists, such as Claude Monet, have stayed at London's famous Savoy Hotel. To celebrate this fact, the Savoy has come up with the idea of having an artist in residence. This scheme will give selected modern artists the chance to recreate Monet's view of London from the Savoy's windows, but with today's architecture. First into the Monet Suite is UK artist Peter Brown, who specialises in London landscapes. Instead of paying the usual bill for this suite - £1,200 per night! - he will donate his painting to the Savoy and receive money from the print sales. Fancy having your burnt sienna delivered to you on a silver salver? Here's a job for the redundant Jeeves.
