Meet our authors and hear more about our new publications
Please join us for our summer Book Night at the Paul Mellon Centre, where we will celebrate our latest publications by asking authors to discuss their research and answer questions about their books.
The evening will begin with welcome drinks in the Library and an introduction by the Centre’s Director of Studies, Mark Hallett. Guests will then be able to attend short presentations by each of the night’s four authors, which we hope will give a lively and engaging snapshot of the exciting new research that we have recently published.
- John Holmes The Pre-Raphaelites and Science
- Jill Francis Gardens and Gardening in Early Modern England and Wales
- MaryAnne Stevens The Royal Academy of Arts: History and Collections Edited by Robin Simon with MaryAnne Stevens
- Martin Postle 'The Cast Collection' (chapter 15 of The Royal Academy of Arts: History and Collections)
