The Dove Valley Arts Society presents a lecture on "Thomas Chippendale" by Janus Slowikowski .
No cabinetmaker’s name is better known than Thomas Chippendale’s. This lecture examines the basis for his fame and concludes that he was to English Furniture what Shakespeare was to English Literature! It was Chippendale’s creative design talent together with his traditionally skilled craftsmanship which enabled him, through his cabinet making business, to design and produce some of the finest and most innovative examples of 18th century English furniture.
We are glad to welcome back Janus Slowikowski freelance lecturer, researcher in English furniture history and antique dealer.
There is an entry charge for non-members.
