Join Natasha Gertler. a Masters student in Science Communication at Imperial College London, in Room 2 of The Courtauld Gallery for an informal talk about a beautiful inlaid frame made in Rome in the first half of the 17th century.

Illuminating Objects shines new light on unexpected objects from the decorative arts and sculpture collections in a series of small displays focused around one object.

The point of Illuminating Objects is to dust off (sometimes quite literally!) these wonderful , unexpected and largely unknown objects. Each object will remain on display for three months.

The project is delivered in partnership with interns from a variety of disciplines and institutions including SOAS, King’s College London, the University of Kent in Canterbury, Imperial College and University College London.
