Dr Julia Siemon, curator of the exhibition The Silver Caesars: A Renaissance Mystery exhibition, will give the first of this year’s Waddesdon in London lectures about her findings into these beautiful, but mysterious, table ornaments.

A specialist in Renaissance European art and Assistant Research Curator in the Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Julia Siemon will describe the relevance of the exhibition to Waddesdon, since nearly half of the tazze have at one time been in Rothschild family collections and will shine some light on the debates about who they were made by, for and for what purpose.

The Silver Caesars: A Renaissance Mystery exhibition opens at Waddesdon Manor 18 April – 22 July 2018, following a successful showing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
