    Abstract

    Professor Kate Retford will be introducing some new research she is currently working on – namely, late eighteenth-/early nineteenth- century print rooms – the fashion for pasting prints directly onto the walls of a room, often adding printed paper borders and decorative elements such as festoons. Such engraved images ranged from portraits, through scenes from Piranesi’s ‘Vedute di Roma’, to contemporary satires and could number 20-50 and sometimes even 200-300 prints. There are now fewer than a dozen such rooms surviving.
