"Discover the precious furniture, exotic porcelain, costly fabrics and rare objects that adorned the homes of the Venetian and Parisian elites. On this weekend course you’ll learn about the role these items played in their original domestic settings, and consider how they were used to convey the social rank of their owners.
Looking at the Wallace Collection and beyond, this course spans three centuries of patronage and collecting. We’ll examine some of the most iconic and luxurious interiors of the Renaissance and the 18th-century – all remarkable for their magnificence and stylistic diversity. Through evocative examples, we’ll consider the artistic, cultural and social climates that enabled their creation, and discover some of the most celebrated artists and patrons of the period..."
