The Art Treasures of Paris Valerie Woodgate Thursday 02 November 2017

Paris is described as the birthplace of modern art and home to some of the most significant examples of medieval and Renaissance tapestry, painting and sculpture. So join us for a journey through the major Parisian museums, buildings and galleries.

In the first lecture, Valerie will look the early period taking us through medieval art, then in the second lecture to Renaissance and 19th Century examples and finally to masterpieces of modern art. All this with reference to the Musée Cluny, the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Musée Picasso and the Centre Pompidou, to name but a few.

There should be plenty of time for questions – so do come.
