Course Description

Many English families became very wealthy in the 18th century and this was seen in their patronage of the arts and architecture. Many built superb country and London houses to show off their wealth, and especially their art collections, often brought back from a Grand Tour to Italy. The interior decor of these historic houses also set a style, Georgian, now seen as classic. We will take a look at such houses as Kedleston Hall, Stourhead, Holkham Hall, Osterley Park House, Syon House, Spencer House, 20 Portman Square in London, etc. We will see the magical interiors from designers such as Robert Adam at Nostell Priory and Osterley Park. Also included will be some of the incredible parks surrounding these houses in the country designed by such architects as Capability Brown. Lastly we will view some of the art in them by artists such as Gainsborough, Hogarth, and Reynolds. Lecture(plus Questions), Facilitated Discussion, Viewing VideosĀ
