Martin Kemp in Conversation with Gary Sheffield ‘Living with Leonardo: Fifty Years of Sanity and Insanity in the Art World and Beyond’

Thursday 25th October 2.30pm @ The Beacon

Fake or fortune? Learn first-hand from Martin Kemp, the world’s leading authority on Leonardo da Vinci. Hear about Kemp’s personal journey over the past 50 years as the ‘go-to’ Leonardo expert. His book covers everything from labyrinthine historical research, ‘Leonardo loonies’, devious dealers, collectors and academia. The power of Leonardo’s art still lives on after more than 500 years.

Gary Sheffield is Professor of War Studies at the University of Wolverhampton. He has written many books on military history, including biographies of Wellington and of Haig, and the bestselling Forgotten Victory: The First World War - Myths and Realities. Gary has been a frequent visitor to the festival as both an author and an interviewer.

All children under 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
