Emma Hamilton: Seduction and Celebrity (REVISITED), National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London SE 10, until 17th April 2017
I know that I only wrote about this exhibition on January 6th but I so, so liked it that I returned to see it again the other weekend AND I enjoyed it even more. Obviously I must be a bit of an Emma Hamilton “groupie” – and I make no apologies for it!
The exhibition provides not only a close-up view of one of history’s great love affairs but also gives an insight into the times that Hamilton and Nelson lived in. It’s an engrossing journey into the past and I count myself fortunate that I have been able to immerse myself into this fascinating story twice.
Please, please don’t miss this show because it will no doubt be a long time before such an exhibition on this scale will be put on.
She was a mighty fine woman!
I think the exhibition was prior to England in Germany (Woerlitz museum) but I could not arrange it to see it.
Not that I am aware of, Ulrich.
