The Wilton Diptych is one of the most beautiful yet enigmatic paintings ever made and the hammer-beam angel roof og Westminster Hall has been described by the architectural historian John Harvey, as ‘the most outstanding individual work in the whole history of English art’. Both appear in the last decade of Richard II’s turbulent reign and they represent the high watermark of a period rich in artistic achievement. This lecture will focus on these two works of art but will also include other examples of art and architecture from late medieval England.

Includes a three course lunch.

It is rare to find a venue - and an audience - so thoroughly dedicated to the enjoyment culture and cultivation of the mind as Dillington House and its visitors. As someone who hasn't lived in Britain for the past two decades, Dillington was also a delightful reminder of the beauties of English landscape and rural architecture. It was a pleasure to speak there and I envy those who can visit frequently. Giles Tremlett (2012)
