Dan Cruickshank will conclude our series of lectures on Georgian arts and culture with a series of case studies that bring together the changes occurring in the Arts during the Georgian period. From James Thornhill’s magnificent murals in the Painted Hall Greenwich, triumphing the arrivals of William and Mary and George I, to the exotic architecture – ‘Hindoo’, Saracenic and Chinese – that grew in popularity towards the end of the period, this talk will examine the fascinating variety and development of art and architectural styles in Georgian Britain.

Dan Cruickshank is an architectural historian and television presenter. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and sits on the Council of the Georgian Group and the Architectural Panel of the National Trust. He has written many books on architecture and has presented a number of programmes on the BBC.
