Event Details

£15 members/£18 non-members

In the 1750s a debate unfolded in Rome as to which was superior:  Greek or Roman art. Despite the publication of Vol.1 of Stuart and Revett’s Antiquities of Athens (1762),  British architects and clients instinctively took their inspiration from Roman art for another generation or more.  Steven Brindle considers the development of the Greek style in England,  from its tentative and experimental mid-Georgian beginnings,  to its sudden triumph in the Regency age,  its establishment as the ‘public style’ in the 1810s and 20s,  its  relationship to the mainstream Neoclassicism of the late-Georgian age,  its decline  –   and its somewhat different course in Scotland.

The talks starts at 6.30pm, doors open from 6.15pm.
