Treasures of the Turf by Christopher Garibaldi.
Following our recent splendid walk through the London and Paris of Claude Monet, we next are invited to gallop along with the Sport of Kings led at a fine pace by Christopher Garibaldi in his presentation ‘Treasures of the Turf’.
Christopher Garibaldi is the Director of the National Horseracing Museum at Newmarket and will be using a wealth of paintings and decorative arts at his disposal to take us on a canter through the Sport of Kings from it’s earliest origins in the 17th century, the development of the racing circuit in Britain and the ever present influence of the Jockey Club to present day.
Christopher has had a distinguished track record in the arts, including as Senior Curator and Keeper of Arts at Norwich Castle Museum and has catalogued the silver artefacts of the Royal Collections at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and The Speakers Residence at The Houses of Parliament. He has also appeared in numerous TV programmes as an expert commentator, and is the author of a number of books relating to the decorative arts. A fine pedigree you must agree! and It’s a good bet he will give us a good run for our money.
This presentation is sponsored by Blevins Franks, and as usual wine and soft drinks will be offered after the presentation to allow socialising with the speaker and the committee.Directions to the venue are on our website www.marinaaltaarts.com and for membership details firstname.lastname@example.org
