Grinling Gibbons is one of the greatest artists of the English Baroque. His exuberant woodcarvings can be seen in royal palaces, St Paul’s Cathedral, stately homes and the V&A. On the tercentenary of his death, Lennox Cato and Ada de Wit will discuss Gibbons and his legacy.
Ada de Wit is Curator of Works of Art and Sculpture at the Wallace Collection, London and Grinling Gibbons specialist; Lennox Cato is a long established furniture dealer and a contributor on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow.
