Event Details

£3 members, £5 non-members

Although somewhat overshadowed by contemporaries such as Vanbrugh and Hawksmoor, Thomas Archer is now recognised as one of the most significant English Baroque architects. The practitioner of an extraordinarily extravagant Baroque style, marked by lavish curves, large scale and bold detail, his works include St John’s Smith Square, Roehampton House and Heythrop Hall. This lecture will serve as a general introduction to Archer’s work, background and role at court, and will include insights from Dr Lawrence-Beaton’s own personal involvement in the recent restoration of one of Archer’s key country houses.

Dr. Helen Lawrence-Beaton is a Senior Architectural Historian at ADAM Architecture in Winchester. Her PhD thesis (University of Bristol) was on Thomas Archer (1668-1743) and she is now accepted as the key authority on this remarkable architect. She is currently preparing a new monograph on his life and works.

The talk starts at 6.30pm. Joining details will be sent to attendees the day of the talk.
