Event details

Author and art critic, Brian Sewell, talks about his life and his thoughts on English contemporary art in conversation with James Boaden from the University’s History of Art Department.

Speaker biography

Addicted to art, Brian Sewell has been the art critic of the London Evening Standard since 1984 – the sad end of a once promising career, the Orwell, Hawthornden and other prizes scant consolation to a man who once enjoyed life as a scholar gypsy.
