Learning to look! – HAUSMALER AT THE V&A

Thursday, 23 February, in the morning
The Victoria and Albert Museum, London
Learning to look!
Painting in miniature on porcelain is one of our most exciting subjects. Ever wondered about its early history? Our handling session will look at its origins from German faÏence, glass and porcelains painted outside their factories (known as Hausmaler) with examples in the Victoria and Albert Museum collection. We will meet with Simon Spier, Curator, Ceramics and Glass 1600-1800, and Errol Manners, Antiques Dealer and Author, in the Cromwell Road entrance at 10:30 on Thursday, 23 February 2023, for a talk and tour in the galleries, looking at iconic examples, and then have an opportunity to handle others in the study room on the 6th floor, and finish by 12:30.
Numbers will be limited and the cost is £20, a reduced rate is available for Emerging Scholars. If interested please contact our FPS administrator Kelsey Weeks ([email protected]), otherwise you can book online.
