The Cult of Gloriana: Art, Music and Personality at the Court of the Virgin Queen
Elizabeth I was the most remarkable woman of a remarkable age. Her reign was one of the great creative periods of English history – literature, music, art, architecture and overseas exploration all reached unprecedented heights. With reference to literature and architecture, this lecture will also focus on the portraits, miniatures and music of Elizabeth’s court.
The aim is to demonstrate great levels of artistic achievement and to recreate something of the energy, spirit, and confidence of this Golden Age.
