Dr Zsuzsanna van Ruyven-Zeman, CVMA Netherlands 'Painters and Glass-painters: Stained Glass in the Netherlands during the 16th century'

These lectures, given by leading European scholars, will explore the relationship between artists such as Albrecht Durer, Hans von Kulmbach and Joachim Wtewael, and stained glass design in sixteenth-century South Germany and the Netherlands. They will touch upon the relationship between artists and craftsmen, changing hierarchies of value for different media, and the role of monumental painting in changing patterns of worship.

Following the lectures, a reception will be held in the Huntingdon Room to celebrate the relaunch of the British CVMA website.
