Details

Meet a curator of the Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill Exhibition, and discover how she tracked down Masterpieces from Horace Walpole's Collection.

You will learn about a once in a lifetime exhibition which brings back to Strawberry Hill some of the most important masterpieces in Horace Walpole’s famous and unique collection. Horace Walpole’s collection was one of the most important of the 18th century, but was dispersed in a great sale in 1842. For the first time in over 170 years, Strawberry Hill can be seen as Walpole conceived it, with the collection in the interiors as he designed it, shown in their original positions. During the talk, there will be an opportunity to see one of the treasures that will be exhibited in the forthcoming exhibition.
