Britain and Europe: Art and Exchange from the Medieval Period to Brexit


An evening of three short papers on artistic exchanges between Britain and continental Europe, and art that responds to exchange and relations between Britain and Europe. Taking contemporary politics as a cue and adopting a broad historical perspective, the evening will be an opportunity for scholars working in this area, or just interested, to meet and hear about each other’s work in an informal and jovial setting.


Papers by:


Dr Lloyd de Beer (The British Museum): English Medieval Sculpture and the Continent

Dr Giulia Weston (The Courtauld Institute of Art): The British Reception of Salvator Rosa

Dr Edwin Coomasaru (The Courtauld Institute of Art): Gendering Brexit’s Magical Thinking: Rita Duffy’s Soften the Border (2017)


Please RSVP via Eventbrite.

As ever there will be snacks and drinks, and there will be an opportunity to continue discussion in the pub.

Emily and Thomas.
