Distinguished lecture series underway

16 Oct 2015


The Sackler Research Forum 2015 Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series got underway this week.  The 2015 series of lectures brings together anthropologists and art historians for a ‘conversation’ about art and about the ways in which their respective disciplines have addressed its theory, practice and history.

This annual series was established in 1989, as a result of a bequest from the F.M. Kirby Foundation, in honour of Frank Davis, who was a critic for Country Life magazine. The bequest has allowed The Courtauld to invite internationally renowned scholars to come to the Institute to speak about their work.
