Princely Renaissance Residences In The United Lands

The Friends of Czech Historic Buildings, Gardens and Parks present a lecture by Caroline Cannon-Brookes, art historian and former lecturer at Leeds University.

Bohemia and Moravia are remarkably rich in Late Renaissance secular architecture: many superb residences have arcaded courtyards and fine interior decoration. The lecture will explore a period when the vocabulary of the Italian Renaissance was taken up by patrons in the Czech Lands, most of whom were associated with the Imperial Court.

With a special interest in Central Europe Caroline Cannon-Brookes has, for many years, been a frequent visitor to the Czech Republic. Founder editor of the journal Museum Management and Curatorship, she now teaches for the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education.
