The Art of the Valentine

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Victorian era brought out both the best and the worst in terms of Valentine cards.

This talk by John Scott takes a look at the images and the words chosen to express eternal love in the nineteenth century, from exquisite engraving and delicate paper lace to satirical cartoons more suited to your enemy than to your lover.
Includes wine reception.
