During the three decades of Professor House’s career at the Courtauld Institute, the terrain of nineteenth-century art history and curatorship has witnessed transformations reminiscent in scale to Baron Haussmann’s project. Ten University Lecturers and museum professionals, who matured under his supervision, will present their current research about the art of the long-nineteenth century through four thematic frames: Antiquity, Modernity and Display; Embodiment and Evanescence; Nationhood and Decoration; Context and Temporality.
