The British Society of Master Glass Painters’ (BSMGP) Autumn lecture for 2019 will be given by the Society’s Honourable Librarian, Leslie Smith. Taking as his theme Imported Continental Glass in Kent Churches, Leslie will explore the Flemish, Swiss and possibly German roundels now found in the churches of his home county, considering the roundels’ iconography and design sources; their provenance, import and sale, and the collectors who acquired them.

The lecture will be held at The Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3AR, and a buffet supper is available for those who wish to stay on after the lecture. Tickets for the lecture cost £17 and the buffet is a further £16. For further information and to book tickets, please visit the Society’s website.
