About

This Decorative Arts and Historic Interiors from University of Buckingham focuses on the development of interiors and decorative arts in England and France in the “long” eighteenth century (c.1660-c.1830) and their subsequent rediscovery and reinterpretation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Overview

This Decorative Arts and Historic Interiors from University of Buckingham is designed to appeal to those wishing to pursue careers in heritage organisations, antique-dealing and auctioneering, museums, conservation, interior design or university teaching and research.
