Prof. Brendan Cassidy. 

The Scots in Eighteenth-Century Rome: Artists, Antiquarians and Art Dealers 

By the second half of the eighteenth century, a number of highly educated Scotsmen, had all but cornered the market as guides & mentors to British tourists in Rome & Naples. They were scholars and intellectuals, archaeologists and art dealers, bankers and, occasionally, successful artists. Through their various activities, they played a central role in the formation of eighteenth-century British taste. This lecture will consider the achievements of these ‘men o’ pairts’, representatives of the Scottish Enlightenment abroad.   

Coffee is served from 10.30am, the lecture begins at 11.00am.
