Picture Hanging and Interior Design, 1660 to today


    What we now call 'picture hanging' evolved slowly over time following the Italians in the 16th century.

    This lecture traces picture hanging fashions across three hundred years, considering formal Palladianism, early private art galleries, and a variety of increasingly informal arrangements in the nineteenth century, ending with some practical tips for today's homes - without needing to rearrange the furniture!
