Collections | Amusement or Enrichment? Archbishop Robinson and his Prints – Dr Kate Heard

Armagh Robinson Library includes a significant collection of prints, part of the original founding collection bequeathed by Archbishop Richard Robinson. Presenting some of the highlights of the collection, this lecture sets Robinson’s activities in the context of eighteenth-century collecting, asking why he acquired the prints and what they can tell us about the Archbishop and his world.

The speaker, Dr Kate Heard, is Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Royal Collection Trust.

The Library is grateful to Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council for their support with the lecture which took place during Armagh’s annual Georgian Festival, and would also like to thank the Market Place Theatre in Armagh for hosting it.
