This is a new three-day event consisting of a combination of lectures and a guided small group visit to the V&A. It will explore the emergence of the collector during the Renaissance period by looking at the small, private studies (studioli), found in many palaces and large houses, and the development of the idea in Northern Europe into the kunstkammer, or ‘art chamber’, during the sixteenth century.
