Standish Barry Lecture: Cottages Ornés of Georgian Ireland
The phenomenon of the cottage orné originated in mid-18th century England and rapidly found favour in Ireland and the Continent. Perhaps the only genre that spans the entire social spectrum, from the gate lodges of country estates culminating in George IV’s Royal Lodge and the so-called ‘Cottage Palace’ of Tsar Nicholas I. In this lecture he will set the cottages ornés of Georgian Ireland in their wider context.

He is a prolific author, his most recent publication is 'Cottages Ornés: The Charms of the Simple Life'; he also curated several exhibitions at the RIBA Drawings Collection, Ashmolean Museum and V&A Museum, and has lectured widely on both sides of the Atlantic.
