Event description

Description

Fifty years ago Tudor archives lit a fuse for a green young curator, and acquiring silver and following its rich paper trail has driven research in London, Paris and across England. How a Silver Curator is formed and made, how British museums and historic houses acquire silver and how items are export stopped or accepted in lieu of tax, are just some of the questions addressed by Philippa Glanville in this talk.

Philippa Glanville OBE FSA, is former chief curator of the metal, silver and jewellery department at the Victoria and Albert Museum and author of Silver in Tudor and Early Stuart England (V&A Publications, 1986). She has recently been an adviser to the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art and is a Trustee of the Art Fund.


This lecture is one of a series of five talks arranged with the support of the Silver Society with experts revealing aspects of Silver from the point of view of the patron, curator, collector and maker. You may also be interested in:
