This tour will visit the newly redisplayed collection of Joseph Wright’s paintings at Derby Museum and Art Gallery. We shall also visit Cromford and Stoke on Trent, two landmark sites which are associated with the development of the textile and ceramic industries. In doing so, we shall explore how romantic imagination and scientific enquiry shaped the spirit of Britain’s first industrial revolution. Your host and guide is art historian Dr Scott Anderson.
