Cambridge Architectural History Seminar - Lydia Hamlett: Painted Architecture / Architecture in Painting
This talk will explore the role and functions of painted architecture in British baroque murals. The intermedial relationship of architecture and painting in the long seventeenth century, which is manifested in mural painting, provides a key to an enhanced understanding of both categories. Drawing on material from the recently published ‘Mural Painting in Britain 1630-1730: Experiencing Histories’ (Routledge 2020), as well as presenting some first thoughts on future directions, the talk will explore a number of case studies and the myriad ways in which architecture and painting relate to, and illuminate, each other, contextualising them further through their connections to literature and performance. The representation of both real and imagined architecture in specific examples will be considered, including at Petworth House, Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard.
