Houghton Collection Revisited
Lecture | York Medical Society Rooms
Tuesday 23 April 2013 - 14:00 until 16:00
The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg is lending some of Sir Robert Walpole's picture collection back to Houghton Hall, Norfolk for an unprecedented and important exhibition. Dr Andrew Moore will give an illustrated lecture on the Walpole Collection, its sale to Catherine the Great in 1779 and the astonishing return of some 60 paintings to Houghton Hall this Summer.
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
