“Those who have not lived in the 18th century before the revolution do not know the sweetness of living” said Talleyrand. This ten-week course will use the important collections of French Decorative Arts at the Wallace Collection to rediscover the lost world of living in eighteenthcentury France. The spaces people inhabited, the decoration of interiors, furniture and porcelain, and aspects of everyday life, from eating and hygiene to the Parisian Salons, will be some of the topics that will be studied through a combination of lectures and gallery talks. This course will be led by Christylle Phillips.
