Louise Voll Box—Stuck up: The British country house and the passion for print rooms (a virtual event

5 February 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

| Members: $10, Non-members: $12

Adhering engravings, mezzotints and ornamental paper borders directly onto walls was an elite eighteenth-century interior design trend. ‘Print rooms’ were commissioned or created by Queen Charlotte, Horace Walpole, Mrs Delany and aspiring style leaders. This lecture examines this short-lived phenomenon from the contexts of print collecting, craft practice and commerce; and explores how print rooms were perceived by eighteenth-century audiences.
