The Age of Beauty: What can we learn from the Georgians? with Catherine Ostler

September 15 @ 6:30 pm8:30 pm BST

News, views, pleasure and a sense of proportion – no era refined and defined the art of living more than the eighteenth century, with their belief in spas, socialising and buildings that many of us still find better for the soul than any other. To add to the sum of human happiness, what can these pleasure seekers teach us now?

Historian and journalist Catherine Ostler is the author of ‘The Duchess Countess: The Woman who Scandalised the Nation’, a historical biography that became a Times, Telegraph, Vogue, Spectator and History Today book of the year.

As a journalist, Ostler has been editor-in-chief of Tatler, ES magazine and Times Weekend and has written for numerous publications including the Financial Times, Daily Mail, Vogue and Newsweek. She read English literature at Oxford, where she specialised in the eighteenth century.

This event will take place in the Upper Tribune in Chiswick House (enter via the Portico stairs at the front of the House)
