IDENTITY AND ROMANCE: The Celtic Revival in Jewellery and Objects with Sophia Errey

Wednesday 1 Jun 2016, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Dreaming of a glorious past, and challenged by the intricacy of the superb metalwork of the Celts, late 19th century designers were inspired to create jewellery and objects worthy of a Celtic chieftain’s family. In this lecture we will see some of these beautiful pieces and explore the context in which they were made.

SOPHIA ERREY is an artist, art educator and writer. She has lectured widely in the visual arts both historical and contemporary, and has a keen interest in metalwork. Her most recent lecture at the Collection was OF CLOSETS AND DRAWING ROOMS | Spaces, Occasions and Dress (2015).
