    Art Society: 'Love and Marriage in the Renaissance': Nick Ross, Art History Abroad (Art School)

    Nicholas Ross is Director of Art History Abroad. He has taught in Italy for over 30 years and has published books on Canaletto, Miro and an artistic guide to Florence. His love of Italy is infectious.

    His lecture is entitled 'Love and Marriage in the Renaissance'. This is where anthropology meets high art.  It is a lecture that connects something that we know in our own lives to the lives of men and women during the Renaissance. It is food for thought for a general audience and full of detail for the student of Art History.  

    The lecture takes place in the Art School and is open to members of the public. There is no charge for admission.

    Please email Amanda Barrow at alb@shrewsbury.org.uk if you are interested in attending.
