Lecture: To Russia with Love

The next Arts Society Lecture is by Patricia Andrew ‘To Russia with Love’ on Monday 16th March 2020 at 2pm, Blackwell Grange Hotel, Darlington DL3 8QH.

Patricia Andrew has had a wide-ranging career. She has an English Literature and an Art History degree and has taught in Italy. She has been a museum curator where she was responsible for collections of art and of military history.

From 1996-2002, Dr Andrew was responsible for professional advice and standards development at the Scottish Museums Council. Since then, she has been a lecturer, heritage consultant and university teacher. This combined with art-historical research principally on the topics of the British in Italy and British architects, artists and garden designers abroad, 1700-1850. She has also researched the art of the first half of the twentieth century, garden history and war art.

This promises to be a very interesting lecture focusing on the legacy of British artists, architects and garden designers in the palaces and gardens of St. Petersburg.
