LOST TREASURES OF STRAWBERRY HILL EXHIBITION
20 October 2018 until 24 February 2019.
In October 2018 some of the most important masterpieces in Horace Walpole’s famous and unique collection will return to Strawberry Hill for a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. Horace Walpole’s collection was one of the most important of the 18th century. It was dispersed in a great sale in 1842. For the first time in over 170 years, Strawberry Hill can be seen as Walpole conceived it, with the collection in the interiors as he designed it, shown in their original positions.
