Friends of Decorative Arts Lecture Series
Director Emeritus John Schloder will examine “English Design Inside and Out, From Henry VIII to Queen Victoria.” He will begin with Renaissance architecture and interior design imported from France and discuss the short-lived English Baroque. He will also spotlight eighteenth-century Palladian follies (buildings primarily constructed for decoration) and nineteenth-century chinoiseries at George IV’s Asian-inspired Royal Pavilion at Brighton.
FODA programs and trips provide an ideal opportunity to make new friends.
