Smoke Mirrors and Sanctity: The Tudors and the Arts as Propaganda

Nicole Mezey looks at the Tudors and their use of the arts as propaganda.

Complementing the success of BBC 2s ‘Wolf Hall’, Nicole Mezey gives her talk “Smoke Mirrors and Sanctity: The Tudors and the Arts as Propaganda”.
Six wives, phantom pregnancies and a Virgin Queen – in barely 100 years the upstart Tudor dynasty produced some of the great dramatic characters of British history. It also steered the realm into the modern age and virtually invented the art of propaganda through portraits by such artists as Holbein and palaces which outshone the finest of its European rivals.
This is the first of six exclusive events for 2015 at our secret location in the heart of Covent Garden. This private club has a distinct 50’s retro feel and our brilliant lectures take place in the small, intimate theatre. The ticket price includes a complimentary drink of wine or a soft drink.
