Exhibition: Is It Any Good? Prints, Drawings, and Paintings at the Lewis Walpole Library

November 2, 2023
16 men are seated at an oval table in Windsor arm-chairs smoking long-stemmed tobacco pipes, drinking from glasses and tankards, and engaging in conversation. On the far right a female servant brings in fresh tobacco pipes and a bottle and the walls include various prints and pictures  including landscapes, 'three witches addressing Macbeth', and satires

Asking Is it any good? this exhibition, on view through 28 June 2024, presents a selection of prints, drawings, and paintings from the library’s collection to explore the intersections of quality and documentary value.
