Foreigners in London 1520 — 1677, Lecturer Leslie Primo
Why did foreigners come in the first place, what was their motivation, and what was the impact of foreigners in London on English art and art practise? The lecture will trace foreign artists from the Tudor to the Renaissance and Baroque period. Artists such as Holbein, Lucas and Susanna Horenbout, van Dyck and Rubens influenced the British School of painting, this lecture will inform us how and assess their legacy.
