Talk by Lucy Abel Smith
Lucy Abel Smith is an art and architectural historian who specialises in art tours in central and eastern Europe.
Nowhere in Europe have so many great houses and castles been built for the conspicuous display of wealth and pleasure than in what is now the Czech Republic. Lucy's illustrated lecture will take is on a grand tour of these houses, to discover their fantastical architecture and the highly sophisticated socail life which led to their construction.
