Saturday Evening Lecture Series 2013

Da Vinci's Last Commission
Fiona McLaren


Imagine you have an old painting, a Madonna and Child that has been in the family for years. It is beautiful, serene and spellbinding. It hangs on your wall and for a long time you take it for granted, but curiosity to know more about it gradually grows until it’s irresistible. The experts are called in - they get excited. What if the painting was by a pupil of Leonardo Da Vinci, or even the great master himself?

What would you do if that painting pointed to one of the greatest heresies of our time, and what if it revealed an incredible story that the Roman Catholic Church has been trying to keep secret for centuries?

Da Vinci’s Last Commission by Fiona McLaren is one of the most astonishing detective stories in the history of art.

A drinks reception and book signing follow this event.
