The Arts Society Tonbridge Talk: Grinling Gibbons, Carver to the Crown by Caroline Knight
Gibbons (1648-1721) came to England from the Netherlands, and developed a virtuoso style of carving, well suited to the Baroque interiors of late 17th century England. His limewood carvings embellished Windsor Castle, Hampton Court, and Kensington Palace, as well as country houses. His work was commissioned for public buildings and churches, and he also worked in marble, making church monuments.
The lecture begins at 2.30pm. All are welcome. Visitors £7.
