The Arts Society King’s Lynn, TASKL, will hold the second lecture of its new season on Thursday, October 13 when Jacky Klein will present an illustrated lecture titled “Splendours and Secrets of the Royal Collection”.
The UK’s Royal Collection contains over a million objects – paintings and works on paper, tapestries, furniture and jewellery, photographs and decorative arts, and this lecture reveals the dramatic stories, plots and intrigue of some of the most unexpected and spectacular objects that make up one of the most important art collections in the world.
Jacky Klein is an art historian, writer and broadcaster, and will be familiar to many as she has presented a range of TV programs for the BBC including ‘Britain’s Lost Masterpieces’ and is also a regular contributor to the Arts review program from BBC Radio 4, ‘First Row’. Among his publications is a best-selling book on British artist Grayson Perry.
“The topic of this conference will surely appeal to many as we will have a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes of this very special collection,” explained TASKL Chairman Stuart Dimmock. “We also look forward to welcoming such a renowned speaker to our group. We are particularly fortunate that all of our speakers are accredited by the Arts Society, so they are always top quality.
TASKL meets once a month on the second Thursday from September to May and everyone is welcome to join for just £52 a year or you can attend individual lectures as a guest for £10.
