Join Dr Jonathan Foyle for a fascinating talk on the Lost Decoration of Historic Buildings. Many of our greatest buildings appear completely different to the way their earliest audiences saw them. Much of their original effect depended on coloured or patterned surface exterior finishes, which have been lost due to changing fashions or simply a lack of maintenance. This talk explores archaeological, documentary and visual evidence for rich decorations that, when reconstructed, transform our perceptions of how cathedrals, palaces and houses great and small once looked. Some examples can throw new light on how fashions spread across early modern Europe. You’ll certainly never look at a bare walls the same way.

Starts at 7:30pm
