Me Fieri Fecit

This is the title of an upcoming symposium at the University of Kent on ‘the role and representation of owners, donors and patrons in medieval art’.

The programme sounds most interesting.  There is a talk ‘“Mon seul desir”: Self-presentation in the patronage of John Talbot, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury’, who was the father of Eleanor Talbot, who is so instrumental in Richard III’s claim to the throne.  And another one on ‘The Changing Image of Plantagenet Kingship: Hagiography and political iconography in the owner figures of St Stephen’s Chapel’.

Once again we probably feel disappointed that we can’t simply go and attend an interesting event like this.  However, in this case we have something to make up for it:  The NSW Branch one day convention on the following Sunday in Mittagong!  An event not to be missed.
