MEMS is delighted to announce that Professor David Ekserdjian, world-renowned authority on Italian Renaissance paintings and drawings will give this year’s Renaissance Lecture. Entitled Raphael and his Sources, the lecture will take place at 6pm on Thursday 27th February 2020 in the Templeman Library Lecture Theatre, The University of Kent’s Canterbury Campus.
David Ekserdjian is Professor of the History of Art and Film at the University of Leicester. As well as writing and lecturing widely on Renaissance art, Professor Ekserdjian is also an expert on the history of collecting. He acts as an adviser to international museums and galleries, including the National Gallery and Tate Britain, as well as to private collectors and auction houses such as Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Bronze sculpture is another of Professor Ekserdjian’s areas of expertise and it formed the topic of an exhibition that he conceived and curated at the Royal Academy.
All are welcome at this open lecture and a wine reception held afterwards.
