Last weekend, art lovers from around the world flocked to Windsor, the renowned private residence club in Vero Beach, Florida, for the opening of Composer, an exhibition of new paintings inspired by great music by Christopher Le Brun, who is also the president of the Royal Academy of the Arts.  Conveniently, that institution sits just across London’s Piccadilly from Fortnum & Mason, which is owned by Windsor’s founders, Hilary and Galen Weston. After a private viewing of the art works (a second exhibit of more paintings from the series opens tomorrow at the Albertz Benda Gallery at 515 W 26th St.), and a lively and often droll discussion between Le Brun and Tim Marlow, the Artistic Director of the Royal Academy, the Westons feted Le Brun at a lavish dinner on two large terraces of their beachside mansion.
