Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill, an exhibition at the eponymous House and Gardens in Twickenham, poses a conundrum. It offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for enthusiasts of eighteenth-century culture, and therefore can be recommended with enthusiasm. But it also has significant presentational problems which make the displays and their contexts less than fully comprehensible to visitors. Like few other exhibitions I have seen, Lost Treasures manages to be both fascinating and frustrating.
