Anne Seymour Damer @ Strawberry Hill House

17 October 2021 - 3 January 2022

An In Focus series of objects at the House, celebrates works created by Horace Walpole’s beloved goddaughter, sculptress Anne Seymour Damer (1748 – 1828), who inherited the House upon his death in 1797.

Central to the new display is Damer’s marble bust of her mother, Caroline Campbell, Lady Ailesbury, thought to be made in the late 1780s. Along with a second marble bust, a Niobid, which was until recently thought to be lost and will be on show at the House for very the first time.  Her brilliant neoclassical marble images are the focus of a special display.
