From Elizabeth to Elizabeth - Five Centuries of British Art Val Woodgate Tuesday 28 April 2020

This instructive lecture examines the impressive development of British art during this 500 year period. It ranges from the Elizabethans, with their exquisite miniatures and hieratic portraits of the Queen, to the extraordinary diversity of works produced in the reign of our present Queen.

She is a former member of the teaching team at Dulwich Picture Gallery. She lectures to arts organisations in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
