About the event:

The history of London would be incomplete without its traditional gentlemen clubs. Brooks’s, founded in 1764 and the Society of Dilettanti founded in 1732 have both managed to continue the best of the founding traditions of these two clubs. On the 30th of September, Charles Sebag-Montefiore, author and senior member of the Society of Dilettanti, will give a historical review of its colourful history at Brooks’s, which has now become its home and the depository of its famous art collection of members’ portraits. These include several by Joshua Reynolds, the founder of the Royal Academy. This is a rare opportunity to see Brooks’s and learn more about the famous Grand Tours undertaken by Society members to Italy and Greece in the 18th and 19th centuries.
