The Impressionists and the Art of Drawing
Lecture | Kinnaird Castle
Wednesday 10 September 2014 - 18:00 until 20:00
Christopher Lloyd, an Art Fund Trustee, worked in the Department of Western Art at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford for twenty years during which time he took two sabbaticals. The first was in 1972 when he was appointed to a fellowship at Bernard Berenson's Villa I Tatti, in Florence, Harvard University's Centre for Renaissance studies. Later during 1980 - 1981 he was a visiting curator at the Art Institute of Chicago concentrating on early Italian art. From 1988 - 2005 he was Surveyor of the Queens pictures.
His publications include “In search of a masterpiece; an Art Lovers guide to Great Britain and Ireland" and “Edgar Degas: Drawings and Pastels”. He has just completed " Paul Cezanne: Drawings and Watercolours".
The combination of such an entertaining and erudite lecturer and the wonderful setting of Kinnaird Castle, by kind permission of the Earl and Countess of Southesk, promises to make this a very special evening.
This event has been organised by the Angus Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
