Event description

Description

Olivia Horsfall Turner, Senior Curator of Designs at the Victoria & Albert Museum, explores the extraordinary work of Huguenot master weaver, James Leman, who worked in Spitalfields in the early 18th century. A large number of his designs, which transformed English silk design, survive in the V&A collection.


Dr Olivia Horsfall Turner curates the Museum’s collection of design drawings and models. After studying at Cambridge, Yale and UCL, she worked as an Architectural Investigator at English Heritage and as an Historian with the Survey of London. She is interested in the connections between drawing and thinking in the design process and in the role of visual representation in exploration, documentation and communication. She is one of the project leads on the V&A Research Institute (VARI) project: ‘The Leman Album: An Enhanced Facsimile’.
