A personal view by Kenneth Clark

The polite reunions in those elegant salons became precursors of revolutionary politics. Sir Kenneth Clark's theme takes him from great palaces like Blenheim and Versailles, to Edinburgh, and to the hills of Virginia where Thomas Jefferson made his home in the 1760s.
