Jonathan Voak (Atelier Ltd), former Head of Apsley House, the Wellington Museum, will discuss the Duke of Wellington's impressive art collection, giving a picture of the Duke's taste and touching upon the gifts bestowed upon the hero of Waterloo as well as the significant acquisitions that he himself made.
The discussion will place Wellington in the context of Georgian society, with dealer Timothy Langston extending the application of Georgian taste to furniture. Popular items of furniture of the period will be explored, together with tips for incorporating these elegant pieces into today's interiors.
LAPADA Talks are free to fair ticket holders and are available on a first come, first served basis. To ensure a place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.
