When library founders W. S. and Annie Burr Lewis built their collection, they favored prints to document the life and times of Horace Walpole and 18th-century studies. Their approach did not preclude the importance of assessing what is good, however. This exhibition presents a selection of prints, drawings, and paintings at the Lewis Walpole Library to explore the intersections of quality and documentary value.
