Led by Rome expert Hilary Bockham, this fast-moving, and interactive discussion will give a brief overview of Western Art History beginning in Egypt and leading up to the High Renaissance days of early 16th century Italy. Martin Luther's appalled reaction to what he saw during his 1510 visit to Rome contributed to the events leading up to the horrifically destructive attack on the city in 1527, hastened the end of the Golden Era, and prepared the stage for Caravaggio, Bernini and the Baroque.

Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a better understanding of how social and political history, art, and architecture are inextricably linked.

Hilary has been one of Context's experts for ten years. She was born in England, where she studied Art and Literature and began her career there as an art teacher. A few years later she followed her interest in fashion and costume and became an internationally successful fashion designer. For ten years before her arrival in Italy in 2005, she ran her own Exhibition Services company, providing customized services for Art Galleries and Museums throughout Britain. She has recently become a regular stand-up comedy performer in Rome.
