Arts Society King’s Lynn hosts BBC historian Jacky Klein's lecture on October 13: ‘Splendours and Secrets of the Royal Collection’

The Arts Society King’s Lynn, TASKL, will be holding the second lecture of their new season on Thursday, October 13 when Jacky Klein presents an illustrated talk entitled ‘Splendours and Secrets of the Royal Collection’.

The UK’s Royal Collection contains over a million objects – paintings and works on paper, tapestries, furniture and jewels, photographs and decorative arts, and this talk reveals the dramatic histories, plots and intrigue of some of the most unexpected and spectacular objects that make up one of the world’s most important art collections.

Jacky Klein is an art historian, writer and broadcaster, and will be a familiar to many as she has presented a range of television programmes for the BBC including ‘Britain’s Lost Masterpieces’ and is also a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's arts review programme, 'Front Row'. Amongst her publications is a bestselling book on British artist Grayson Perry.
