For the 18th-century intellectual, fresh from the Grand Tour, statues added meaning and ideology to a landscape. Informed choices allowed owners to display their erudition (and wealth) to visitors, through careful placement of a Venus here or an Apollo there. Enjoy a glass of wine and the cast collection in this joint venture between the Botanic Garden and the Museum of Classical Archaeology, as garden historian Dr. Twigs Way explores the role of statuary in 18th-century landscape gardening.
This event is part of the Curating Cambridge programme.
For adults. Free of charge.
