Hillary Bockham is an excellent seminar leader. She was so engaging, knowledgeable and enthusiastic; it was definitely contagious. I have seen some of the items in her presentation and can't wait to go back and see them with new eyes. I have an entirely new appreciation for Baroque.
This was an insigthful look into two of the great Masters of Roman sculpture.
A great trip to Rome, amazing amount of information, insights and intrigue into these 2 little-known (to me) masters. I loved hearing about them individually, and then how they related. Hilary provided excellent background into not only their work, but their personalities and lives such that when the intersections occurred, I understood because I felt I knew each man. She ably and artfully crammed an incredible amount of data into a short 75 minutes, she's the kind of person you'd like to have gelato with after the class. Greatest compliment to any instructor - I think - is to whet a student's appetite to learn more. I have already reserved 2 of her recommended books from my local library. An extremely qualified, delightful guide, I'm so thankful we've 'met'. This is the dilemma of Covid, I would not have met her had it not been for Context. Out of a nightmare, comes such goodness and blessings! Brava, Hilary and grazie.
Beckham was articulate, interesting, and, above all, scholarly. Her slides included titles and dates and were quite clear. I think she is the best presenter I have seen with Context.
