Join us online every Tuesday throughout June, when curators and historians will consider the evolution and variety of country house interiors in Britain and Ireland created between 1780 and 1950, with an emphasis on furniture makers and designers. Each of the four sessions will deal with a different stylistic phase and will be introduced by either Dr Megan Aldrich (sessions 1-3) or Elisabeth Bogdan (session 4). Each week the introduction will be followed by two experts who will provide case studies on specific country houses. A short Q&A will follow each presentation.

Here is an overview of the course programme:

Session 1 – 4th June
Title: Reconsidering the Antique: later neoclassical interiors
Speakers: Dr Megan Aldrich, Dr Kyle Leyden & James Collett-White

Session 2 – 11th June
Title: Opulence and Excellence in Regency Interiors
Speakers: Dr Megan Aldrich, Dr Alexandra Loske & Adriana Turpin

Session 3 – 18th June
Title: The Arts and Crafts Country Houses: Alternative Interpretations of the Past
Speakers: Dr Megan Aldrich, Jessica Insley & Annette Carruthers

Session 4 – 25th June
Title: The Country House in the Twentieth Century
