This study day will begin with a historical survey of Paris from its ancient origins as the settlement of the Parisii tribe to the present day. We will then look in detail at aspects of the city - its architecture, people and events down the centuries through the lens of paintings made by a diverse group of painters. These will include topographical works by lesser known artists such as Jean Baptiste Raguenet as well as paintings by Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir.

Picture Gallery

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)
