Join Gina Muskett as she introduces the highlights of the Thomas Hope collection, including the magnificent statue of Antinous in the North Rotunda.

The important collection of antiquities of Thomas Hope (1769-1831) was sold in 1917. William Hesketh Lever, Lord Leverhulme, was the largest purchaser at this sale, acquiring Greek pottery and Roman sculpture now on display in the Lady Lever Art Gallery.
