For Black History Month this October, please join us for this series of lectures on the Black Presence in art.

Black History Month is an observance each October recognizing important people and events in the history of those from Asian, African and Caribbean heritage.

This course looks at the black presence in works in our national collections. This takes many different forms; blacks are depicted as kings, as slaves, as servants, as saints and sometime just as people. 

We start with a general introduction on the Image of the Black in Renaissance Art in Europe, the following two sessions focus on 2 specific popular black images in Renaissance Europe: St Maurice and the Black Magi.
