Gideon Hall - Fabergé

24 May 2022

The members would like to say a huge thank you to Gideon Hall for his lecture last night and for travelling from Reading to do so. As I listened to Gideon last night, and watched the slideshow he had prepared for us, I realised that Art comes in many forms, and we as artists in paint, pencil or pastels can learn from the Masters of other art forms.  The members who were present were captivated by the narrative, Gideon's knowledge of the subject and his undoubted love and enthusiasm of sharing that knowledge is without question.  Imperialist Russia was brought to life, as was the sheer beauty and craftmanship of the house of Fabergé. From the first egg crafted through to the present day we learnt so much.  So Thank You Gideon - Amazing night!!
