Paul Mellon Centre, London: Wednesday 23rd January 5.30-8pm
Christine Stevenson (Courtauld Institute of Art) ‘Architectural Husbandry: ‘Rough Materialls’ and Tough Clients in Eighteenth-Century Britain’
The second in a seasonal series of five, fortnightly research seminars will be given by distinguished historians of British art and architecture. These research seminars, which take place on Wednesday evenings, are intended to showcase original and stimulating research in all areas of British art and architectural history. They will take the form of hour-long talks, followed by questions and drinks, and are geared to scholars, curators, conservators, art-trade professionals and research students working on the history of British art. The papers given in this first series of research seminars will be delivered by members of The Paul Mellon Centre’s Advisory Council.
In order to help plan for these events, it is essential to check availability and let the Centre know which individual research seminars and research lunches you would like to attend, by emailing the Centre’s Events Co-ordinator, Ella Fleming, on efleming@paul-mellon- centre.ac.uk, at least two days in advance.
