In the Footsteps of Lord Byron: John Frederick Lewis in Greece and Albania

The London Hellenic Centre

WEDNESDAY 8 DECEMBER, 7PM
THE HELLENIC CENTRE

Briony Llewellyn will introduce John Frederick Lewis (1804-1876), famed for the meticulous detail and jewel-like colours of his Orientalist paintings. In 1840, Lewis travelled through Greece and Albania on his way to Constantinople, and made numerous very striking watercolours of the people and places that he encountered. Charles Newton has pieced together Lewis’s journey, and he will take up the story with an examination of what inspired him to take the particular route that he followed.
