Medieval Art at the Mellon – the Ranworth rood screen

As the Mellon Centre for British Art continues to increasingly expand their focus beyond the eighteenth century, the first in a planned series of One Object, Three Voices will focus on the spectacular painted rood screen at Ranworth. The church, a short distance outside Norwich, is outstanding even among the screens of the county as a survival showing remarkable completeness of its imagery and exceedingly high quality artistry.

The three voices will be a conservator, an art historian and the rector of the church itself:
Lucy Wrapson (Hamilton-Kerr Institute)
Paul Binski (University of Cambridge)
Nicholas Gerrard (St Mary’s, Ranworth)

The lecture will take place at the Paul Mellon Centre, 16 Bedford Square (Tubes Russell Square, Holborn or Tottenham Court Rd.) on the 20th November at 5:45.

Advance booking is essential: email Ella Fleming, on efleming@paul-mellon-centre.ac.uk, at least two
days in advance.
