Context brings the brightest minds to your living room with perspective-shifting online lectures.
Loved, loved, loved this presentation. Hattie's fantastic slides made it so much easier to digest the wealth of information she shared. I cannot wait for my next museum visit where I will pay equal attention to the frames!
Loved the talk...Hattie gave so much information and it was so well presented. It is a topic that is rarely discussed and so I was pleasantly surprised when Context offered it. Signed up months ago. Definitely recommend it!
Highly recommend Hattie Bennett. Great presenter with deep knowledge of subject matter. You can tell she loves sharing her expertise.
I thought I had a bit too much information going in as I learned water gilding in art school and have been reading, viewing and collecting frames for some time. I have enjoyed Context Tours live in Rome and Istanbul. A friend has been enjoying the Context subjects online while not able to travel and gifted this to me.
Wow, I learned so much. My favorite part was how original frames were changed to suit the owner's taste. The Ingres frame that he designed was a great example. The incorporation of the painting's theme in the frame as in Murillo's Immaculate Conception was another favorite.
An excellent job by a very knowledgeable and engaging host.. Thank you.
