This study day shows how the British Museum is a product of the Enlightenment.
Through lectures and gallery talks by BM staff and guest speakers, we consider the world of Enlightened Grand Tourists, public science, Sir John Soane and the British Museum's splendid Enlightenment Gallery.
Figures included are Sloane, Banks, Wedgwood, Hamilton, Nelson, Byron and Goethe. There is also an exclusive chance to view the Romantic Delacroix's original lithographs of Faust.
Joint study day for OU students and the public.
