Join author Lee Cheshire for a talk about fifty pivotal moments in art, from the Renaissance to the present day

Are you an art lover and want to know more? This talk will give you all the background knowledge you need for your enjoyment and understanding, whether you are an avid gallery-goer, armchair enthusiast or curious observer.

In Key Moments in Art Lee Cheshire's storytelling approach is both entertaining and easy to remember. He celebrates artistic ingenuity and collaboration, but does not shy away from the arguments, fights and lawsuits that have dogged art’s often-turbulent course. Vivid, colourful vignettes capture the excitement of their times.

This event is in collaboration with Thames & Hudson.
