Booking for this study afternoon is now open

Venue: Putney Library

This morning has been arranged with the Away Tour to Dresden particularly in mind but all members are welcome to attend.

Clare Ford-Wille writes, ‘Dresden has risen from the ashes in every way.  The wide River Elbe runs majestically through Dresden and now lining its banks are beautifully restored buildings: the Frauenkirche, the Schloss and the magical Zwinger.   Dresden’s art collections are outstanding, from the work of European Old Masters to that of the German Romantic painters, housed in spacious galleries.  The fantastic treasures of the Green Vaults complete Dresden’s riches’.

Clare Ford-Wille has an degree in Art History from Birkbeck College, University of London.  She has regular commitments with organisations such as the Art Fund and the National Trust, the Centre for Lifelong Learning, the National Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum.  She also conducts study tours abroad.
