In the bicentenary year of George IV’s accession, the Furniture History Society symposium will present new lines of research on the king’s long career as a patron and collector of furniture and furnishings.  It aims to re-examine the driving forces behind his activities in this field, relationship with makers, activities as a collector, as well as his contemporary impact and longer-term legacy.
