In the 18th century England foreign travel to Italy and France inspired many landowning gentlemen and women to dabble in design. The results were exciting, ambitious and often eccentric. The catalogue highlights a number of these so called ‘amateurs’ and places them in a national context. 42 colour illustrations and 25 black and white.
