Homee and Phiroze Randeria Lecture – Mirjam Foot
16 April @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Taste and discrimination: The Cerruti Collection of decorated bindings. Very few people outside Italy will have heard of Francesco Federico Cerruti, a man of great taste and discernment with an excellent eye for quality. As well as paintings, sculptures, ceramics and other objects of art, he collected decorated bindings, ranging in date from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, displaying a wide variety of materials, styles and designs, originating largely in Italy and France. The lecture will be profusely illustrated.
