The Building as a Canvas: Wall Paintings from Antiquity to the Present
Friday 16th November 2018
The Great Hall, St Bartholomew’s Hospital, Smithfield, London EC1A 7BE
The Traditional Paint Forum is pleased to announce that, after the sell-out conference ‘The Triumph of Illusion’, our 2018 conference will explore murals and decoration applied to the building envelope and will look at techniques, materials and technical challenges of conservation. Our talks will span from Egyptian painting to the 20th century. The conference will be set in the amazing Great Hall of St Bartholomew’s Hospital, which is not to be missed, and will include tours of the Grand Staircase, The Hogarth Stair, the walls of which were decorated by William Hogarth (1697-1764).
