Description

The 3rd Earl of Bute, Politics & Collecting in Enlightenment Britain

As part of the joint exhibition between The Hunterian, Glasgow and Mount Stuart, Isle of Bute we are running a three-day symposium, inspired by themes explored in the exhibition, which will bring together established and early career scholars from different faculties and professional backgrounds to discuss the dynamic interplay between art, politics and collecting so evident in the life of the 3rd Earl of Bute.

The symposium will be held at the University of Glasgow and at Mount Stuart, Isle of Bute. Papers will be delivered on day one in Glasgow, and will be open to the public. Days two and three will take place at Mount Stuart, and will include tours of the house, archives and collection highlights for speakers and invited delegates.

Tickets are for day one of the symposium only.

Confirmed speakers:

Desmond Shawe-Taylor (Royal Collection); Rosie Razzall (Royal Collection); Anne T. Woollett
(J. Paul Getty Museum); Anthony Lewis (Glasgow Museums); Wayne E. Franits (Syracuse University); Graham Rowe (University of Derby); Heiner Krellig (independent);
