  • 1. Art Investment Evening


    Join us and a small group at our historic country house location by the Thames to learn more about the value of art today. Hear from Aidan Meller’s twenty years of experience as a collector and gallery owner. Explore the building that once inspired Graham’s Toad Hall, housed Elizabeth I, and set the stage for a famous, Pre-Raphaelite love affair. And come away with a straight forward ‘toolkit’ to collecting with confidence.

  • 2. 1,000 Years of Art History


    The field of art history can seem endless. Covering 1000 years of art history in just a single hour, this talk aims to wrap up the fundamentals of art history. Touching on some of art’s most scandalous ideas and pioneering partnerships, it should help you feel familiar with the milestones of art history. What made the Pre-Raphaelites the first avant-garde movement, and how did Picasso break out of his ‘blue period’? Is there really a difference between modern and contemporary art? With the answers to some of art’s fundamental questions, I hope that you’ll start drawing your own lines of discovery in this field.

  • 3. People & Periods


    Get to grips with art history’s most significant artistic periods, movements, and artists with our series of talks dedicated to the turning points of art history. From the masters and students of the Old Master period, to the avant-garde groups that defined twentieth century modernism, hear about art’s most significant partnerships, and pioneering individuals that shaped art history. Whether you want to hear about the forgotten women artists of Modern British, or you’re keen to get to grips with the diverse career of Pablo Picasso, keep up to date with our talks.
