Lecture: North and South of the Loire: The Culture of Copying and the Rebirth of Sculpture, Professor Deborah Kahn, Courtauld Institute of Art, 25 April 2017 5.30pm

From his thesis of 1950 on “Regional Schools of English Sculpture” to his later writings, Professor George Zarnecki, deputy director of the Courtauld Institute of Art from 1961 – 74, showed himself to be a master of visual comparison. In one of his last articles (written in 1992), he surveyed the iconographic kinship between the earliest Romanesque sculptures at Saint-Benoit-sur-Loîre, Bayeux and Toulouse.
