This August we are delighted to welcome back Antony Williams RP to lead his second painting course at Maison du Guit. Antony is one of the UK’s best-known portrait artists and has painted members of the royal family, politicians, international sportsmen and actors.


In 2021 Antony exhibited two of his portraits at The Royal Society of Portrait Painters Exhibition at The Mall Galleries, London, from 6th – 15th May 2021. 




Antony had a solo exhibition of recent still life paintings with Messums London, 28 Cork Street, from 15th April – 8th May 2021.

to view the works online and for more information.


This exciting course at Maison du Guit offers a rare opportunity to work side by side with one of the country’s leading artists, and it will include painting landscapes, figures in a landscape as well as portraits in the studio using a model. Antony’s laid back, inclusive and informal approach guarantees an insightful and stimulating week discovering new methods of creative expression. Antony, who was elected to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 1996, has carefully planned a schedule to suit all standards and tastes. You will be painting in the spacious studio and grounds at Maison du Guit, the local chateau and picturesque village
