Private View of the Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill House




Wednesday 30 January 2019

PRIVATE VIEW OF THE LOST TREASURES OF STRAWBERRY HILL HOUSE SOLD OUT

WEDNESDAY 30TH JANUARY 2019

This is a once in a life time opportunity to see the contents of Strawberry Hill House as they were in Walpole's time.  Curators Dr Silvia Davoli and Michael Snodin have undertaken a major treasure hunt for Walpole's collection which has led to the discovery of over 150 objects found in public museums and in private collections around the world.  These include paintings by Reynolds, Lely, Van Dyck together with miniatures by Hilliard and Holbein as well as unusual items such as a lock of Mary Tudor's hair.  Horace Walpole left a detailed catalogue of his treasures so that the loans can be reinstated in their original settings.

The two curators will be giving the members a private guided tour of the exhibition which will last approximately 90 minutes. This will be followed by lunch and the journey home.

Tickets £45 these will be sold ONLY at the November and December lecturers. 

Please contact Jane Coulson 01256 850 497 for further information/enquiries
