Author David Buckman launches his latest work, Lancelot Ribeiro: An Artist in India and Europe.
Lancelot Ribeiro was a hugely prolific artist. Although a series of solo and mixed shows in England and abroad excited collector interest through much of his life, during his final years he withdrew from the art world and, as a result, became largely forgotten. But in recent years his legacy has been restored and his story, as told in David's book, has witnessed a revival; it's clear that his reputation as a painter of international stature is now secure.
This evening's reception features a lecture by David Buckman on his book and the artist. Copies of David's book will be available to purchase on the night.
