The exhibition will feature over 190 objects, more than half of which are lent from private and national UK collections, as well as key loans from abroad.
On Friday 2 November, Dora Thornton, Exhibition Curator will give 45-minute illustrated introduction to the exhibition, discussing the context, themes and highlights of the exhibition.
