From Rome to Kent - the Baroque Style in English Furniture
Lecturer: Janusz Karczewski-Slowikowski
This lecture combines looking at furniture with looking at the interiors for which it was designed as it follows the Baroque style from
St. Peter's in Rome through Versailles to numerous English houses designed by William Kent, whose Palladian classicism
was to dominate the early 18th Century
