From the seventeenth century wunderkammer, through Grand Tour collections, to Victorian assemblies of imperial plunder, the British country house has long been a lumber room of appropriated cultural artefacts. Tim Knox looks at the way British and Irish country house proprietors pressed Egyptian antiquities, Greek and Roman marbles, Assyrian reliefs, Indian and Pacific curios and objects of natural history into domestic service, and traces the rise and fall of the country house museum.

The Victoria and Albert Museum’s founding commitment to design education and industry forged an enduring connection to house and home that continues to the present day. The Museum’s foundations were built on domesticity, which has played a leading role in the Museum’s egalitarian vision of ‘art for all’. In this lecture, V&A Director Dr Tristram Hunt will explore how the V&A’s two keystones – the civic and the domestic – have shaped its ambitions and duties, and how they continue to guide the Museum’s principles today.
