Take a look at our lecture programme. It is not just about paintings! Our interests include architecture, ceramics, furniture, garden design, glass, jewellery, mosaics and sculpture, as well as their history and the lives of artists, craftsmen and patrons. We also recognise the role of music, theatre and literature.
