Mass migration and the arts

in Britan

by Vivienne Lawes 

Please join us for the next lecture in the series

The mass migration of the French Protestant Huguenots in the 16th and 17th centuries impacted the arts, the military and finance sectors of the countries to which they fled following Catholic persecution in their homeland. This lecture focuses on three areas of the arts impacted by the migration: the silk weaving industry; the silversmiths and ceramicists introducing Rococo style into Britian; and the baroque style of the great Huguenot designer, Daniel Marot.

Arrive at 6.30 pm on Monday, 5 August 2024. We look forward to seeing you there!
