Event description

'Vestments and Textiles in Hans Memling’s God with Singing and Music-making angels in context'

Lisa Monnas looks at the costumes and textiles in paintings by the fifteenth-century Flemish painter Hans Memling. How can vestments and other textiles help us understand a painting in new ways, and what can they tell us about broader questions of 'realism'?

A break at 5:50pm is followed by discussion and refreshments.
