IS CHRISTMAS IN GOOD TASTE? David Phillips Tuesday 18 December 2018

We review some wonderful and equally gloriously awful historic and modern Christmas imagery. Charles Dickens in England and Washington Irving in the USA played a major role. 

 

David Phillips studied History at Oxford, has worked for Nottingham Castle Museum and from 1982-98 lectured in Museum Studies and Art History at Manchester University.
