Print Rooms in Britain & Ireland, 1750-1840

This talk Print Rooms in Britain & Ireland, 1750-1840 by Professor Kate Retford provides an insight into research she is currently carrying out on print rooms in Britain and Ireland in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It was part of a six-part series of lectures on ‘Printmaking and Print Collecting up to 1840’, organised by Armagh Robinson Library.

Professor Kate Retford is based at the Department of History of Art at Birkbeck, University of London. Her research focuses on 18th-century British art and country house collections. She is presently working on a new book project, ‘Cutting and Pasting: Making Print Rooms in Britain and Ireland, 1750-1840.

This lecture forms part of a series of lectures on ‘Printmaking and Print Collecting up to 1840‘, organised by Armagh Robinson Library. The Library is grateful to the Paul Mellon Centre for its support for the lecture series.
