Elegance and the Grand Tour shaped British tastes from 1714 to 1830 during the reigns of four King Georges. Wealthy and visionary patrons spearheaded the development of architecture, landscapes, painting and furniture. We will examine patrons such as Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington, the classical creations of William Kent, Robert Adam, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and Humphry Repton and the fine details of artist Thomas Gainsborough and furniture maker Thomas Chippendale.
