Welcome

The British Murals Network is a group of academics, museum and heritage professionals with a research interest in mural painting. We focus, in particular, on the period 1600-1750, which saw the greatest number of murals being commissioned in British palaces and country houses, by artists including Antonio Verrio, Louis Chéron, Louis Laguerre, Gerard Lanscroon and Sir James Thornhill.

We act as a research hub, publishing news of relevant seminars and conferences, and offering researchers a chance to ask questions and posit new ideas. We also organise visits and workshops to discuss the history, meaning, preservation and interpretation of murals, aiming to increase scholarly understanding and popular awareness of this traditionally neglected genre in British art.
