Horace Walpole at V&A

It is perhaps surprising that the V&A's latest exhibition Horace Walpole and Strawberry Hill was first shown in the USA, at the Yale Center for British Art, but many of Walpole's paintings and artifacts ended up there when his collection was sold off. For the first time in over a century, many of these items have been brought together to recreate his pioneering collection in the context of the rooms at Strawberry Hill. The exhibition continues until 4 July. Click the title link to learn more about this fascinating man.
