    Mummies, Marbles and Medals: Why the British Museum has a Prints and 
    Drawings Collection"

    The lecture explores how the British Museum, famous today for its
    archaeological holdings from the ancient worlds also have one of the
    world’s greatest graphic collections. In examining this largely
    accidental history, the lecture will also look at how prints and drawings
    help us understand how artists planned their work, the historical
    roots of fake news and what connects the world’s most valuable
    baseball card to the birth of advertising in Georgian London.

    Hugo Chapman has been the Simon Sainsbury Keeper of the Department of
    Prints and Drawings since 2011, he joined the British Museum as a
    specialist in Italian drawing in 1995. During his time there he has
    organized shows on Michelangelo and Italian Renaissance drawings and
    is currently working on an exhibition about Piranesi.

    Speaker: Hugo Chapman, The Simon Sainsbury Keeper of Prints &
    Drawings, The British Museum
