Renaissance Faces: Van Eyck to Titian
An event to link with the National Gallery's important
exhibition on Renaissance portrait painting (October 15 2008 - January 18 2009).
One of the curators of this exhibition, Jennifer Fletcher, a former senior
lecturer at the Courtauld Institute, will give an illustrated lecture on The
Patrons, the Display and the Subjects of Renaissance Portraiture. The
fourteenth century Merchant Adventurers' Hall is a magnificent building to visit
in its own right. There is plenty of space in the Hall so do invite your friends
to what promises to be a pleasant pre-Christmas occasion. Last year's lecture
there, on Corot preceded by a wine and delicious canape reception, proved to be
a convivial and enjoyable event.
