Queen Elizabeth
Thursday 2 November (Booking 21 September)
Leslie Primo BA MA

This Study Day will look at why foreigners were preferred by the aristocracy in London to native-born painters and why foreigners came in the first place, what was their motivation and what was their impact on English art.  Leslie Primo will look at the various formats and uses of art, tracing foreign artists from the Tudor period through to the Renaissance and Baroque.  He will examine contributions of artists such as Holbein, Gerrit van Honthorst, Marcus Gheeraerts the younger, Lucas and Susanna Horenbout, Isaac Oliver, Paulus van Somer, Van Dyck, Peter Lely and Rubens.
