We have just received this invitation from Wayne Spilsbury to what looks like a first rate free lecture at the King’s School Bruton. He writes, ” It is looking at the human figure in the Renaissance and beyond with a consideration of gender. It is primarily targeted at 6th form students but members (of BAS) would be welcome. It is by Professor Bronwen Wilson, Head of World Art History at the Sainsbury Institute. She is a renowned authority and lectures at Cambridge and the Courtauld Institute amongst other places.
I attach the original flyer sent to schools. If anyone is interested then an email would be useful.” Click on Kings lecture
