Event announcement: ‘Lapis Lazuli: Myth, Matter and Majesty’

15 June 2015 10.00am — 11.50am

Venue: Lecture Theatre, Weston Library, Oxford (Map)

Speaker(s): David Margulies introduced by Anita Chowdry


This lecture and demonstration will be an exploration of the myths, mistakes, and facts about lapis lazuli and the pigment, genuine ultramarine. The intention is to challenge, and investigate the ‘accepted wisdom’ surrounding the stone through geology and geo-politics, mineralogy, etymology, the manufacturing processes, and application in sculpture and paintings.

This event is free but places are limited so please complete our booking form to reserve tickets in advance.
