An Art Society Lecture with Simon Seligman.

Born into a humble farming family, Joseph Paxton was one of the most inventive and influential figures of the 19th century; his most famous masterwork, the Crystal Palace of 1851, is considered by significant contemporary architects to be the birth of modern architecture.

This lecture celebrates Paxton’s life and achievements and how he left his mark on Victorian Britain.
