Help Italy
stay beautiful

The first FAI UK Masterclass

25 September 2018

The first FAI UK Masterclass

FAI UK exists to help Italy stay beautiful by funding restorations, but also to make Italian art better known, so we are launching a series of Masterclasses. This one is with two of London’s leading dealers.

  • At 6.30 Stuart Lochhead offered a little aperitivo, and with glass in hand, he told people the story of the Ottavio Farnese bust, the Pisano and the Algardi Corpus.

  • At 7.15, we walked a hundred yards to Stephen Ongpin’s gallery, where he chose four Italian drawings to talk about, besides what he had on the wall. Supplied with white gloves, we could handle some drawings afterwards.
