Finding Francis

A new 5 day residential course ‘Byzantium in London’ is planned for summer 2024. This will be based in central London and focus on Byzantine icons and works of Art in the London collections. The course will be designed to introduce icon painters and iconophiles to aspects of Byzantine art history relevant to iconography and understanding of icon theory. It is hoped to include a full-day of painting practice, focussing on late late Byzantine /Palaeologan painting.
