REMINDER: Members’ Event: Spanish Casts at the V&A’s Newly Renovated Cast Courts, 17 December 2018, 10:30am

2015hw0169_jpg_dsThe V&A’s Cast Courts have been recently renovated (a project lasting nearly ten years in total), and re-opened to the public on 1 December.

ARTES members are invited to meet on 17 December at 10.30 am in room 46a at the Victoria and Albert Museum for a talk on the Spanish casts in the galleries.

The tour will be given by Holly Trusted, ARTES Hon Vice-President and Lead Curator of the Cast Courts. We will look at a number of these important and fascinating plaster copies, including the Portico de la Gloria from Santiago de Compostela and the Romanesque sculptures from Oviedo and Santo Domingo de Silos.

This event is free for members. Please email artesiberia@gmail.com to book a place.

Non-members are welcome to attend for a nominal fee. Please click here to buy a ticket. Please click here to discover the benefits of joining ARTES and become a member.
