Summary: Strawberry Hill, a fantasy gothic revival castle, was conceived and built by the influential art historian and antiquarian Horace Walpole (1717-1797) with his art collection in mind. For a new exhibition opening in October 2018 many pieces from his collection, which was dispersed at auction in 1842, will be reunited for the first time and displayed in their original settings within the castle. This beautifully illustrated accompanying book will describe the complex relationship between the house and its works of art, and allow a deeper understanding of the context and processes of Walpole's collecting and its relationship to the house.
