The Colours of Christmas: Gold

The Colours of Christmas: Gold

Over three weeks leading experts discuss the histories of three colours associated with Christmas (red, blue and gold) through richly illustrated lectures. In this final lecture, Timothy Schroder, Prime Warden of the Goldsmiths Company, will explore the colour gold.

The first lecture on 6 December will be given by Jo Kirby, formerly of the National Gallery Scientific Department, and will examine the colour red. The second lecture on the 13 December, by Ashok Roy, former Director of Collections at the National Gallery, will focus on blue, and in particular lapis lazuli, the beautiful semi-precious stone which has been a prized source of colour from ancient times. 

Tickets cost £10 per lecture (£9 concessions) or £25 (£22 concessions) for all three. Click here to purchase the bundled ticket.
