The romance of Italy
In the 19th century, British visitors to the Italian peninsula captured their experiences through creating and collecting art. Drawing on paintings from the Royal Holloway collection, Assistant Curator, Imogen Tedbury, explores attitudes to Italy in Victorian Britain: from anxiety and prejudice to romance and fantasy.
Please note that this talk will take place between music lectures taking place inthe gallery space so please wait outside the Picture Gallery until the Assistant Curator arrives.
Admission free but booking is essential.
