Event Details

Frederick the Great, King of Prussia (1712-1786) and his younger brother Henry (1726-1802) were widely known to share an erotic and emotional preference for men. Frederick’s teenage affair with Hans Hermann von Katte caused a major political scandal and a personal catastrophe which marked him for the rest of his life. His brother Henry was much more successful in protecting and enjoying his private life. This lecture by Director of the Wallace Collection, Christoph Vogtherr will explore the different ways the two brothers organized their lives – and their stormy relationship that resulted. Frederick and Henry were among the outstanding art collectors of their time. Works at the Wallace Collection which were once owned by them will feature in the lecture.
