Video: An Introduction to Aestheticism

This video introduces the key characters of the Aesthetic Movement  and discusses how the movement influenced decoration, dress and what we now term ‘lifestyle’. Wander through the interiors of the V&A with The Cult of Beauty exhibition’s curator Stephen Calloway and get a glimpse of the decoration at Leighton House in Holland Park with their senior curator Daniel Robbins. It is a great introduction before visiting the exhibition in person.
