Event Details

Liberty : Anna Buruma
[12/55]
The Gallery, 70 Cowcross St

In the 1920s, Liberty made the unique response of a Tudor building (with timber from real battleships) on Great Marlborough Street, linked to a classical stone frontage by the same architects to conform with the rebuilding of Regent Street. It has always been strong on home furnishings and fabrics, retaining aspects of its orientalist origins in 1875. The scholar and archivist Anna Buruma is a textile specialist and will trace the development of the company’s identity, leading to its current revival.

All lectures are on a Thursday at 6.30pm at The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1.

Members £8, non-members £10, students £5, including a glass of wine. Some tickets will be available at the door.
