A Masterpiece on your Mantelpiece: Images on Christmas Cards

Thursday 7th December 2023

Speaker – Richard Kay

In our eagerness to read the sender’s news, how often do we look at the themes depicted on the front of Christmas cards? In this seasonal talk, Richard Kay, of Lawrences Auctioneers, assesses the content, composition and conviviality of the art on our Christmas cards and examines why the work of artists as varied as Botticelli and Keith Haring adorn our mantelpieces at this time of year.
