The first historian of English art, Horace Walpole, was renowned among the 18th-century cultural elite as a novelist, historian, collector, publisher, social commentator and man of letters. Strawberry Hill was built as a summer villa by Walpole between 1747 and 1790 in a masterpiece of Georgian Gothic, reflecting the fashion for medieval architecture and decoration at the time.
