The Great Chamber contrasted with the private painted rooms of the 17th Century

In this online lecture curator and arts consultant Mireille Galinou compares & contrasts 17th Century private chambers

The Great Chamber at Charterhouse has a split identity – a grand private room in the sixteenth century, a seat of power for the governors of a new charity from the seventeenth century onwards and a heritage landmark in the twentieth and twenty-first century. In this online lecture, curator, and arts and museums consultant Mireille Galinou proposes to re-position the Great Chamber by juxtaposing it to painted rooms of the seventeenth century. You are invited to a private tour of several of these painted rooms – in Berkshire (Sir John Kedemister Library), in Derbyshire (Hardwick Hall & Bolsover Castle), Northamptonshire (Canons Ashby), Wiltshire (Wilton House), and finally London (Carshalton & Botolph Lane). Which identity will prevail?
