Giotto and the Humanising of the Adoration Story

Today, Accredited Lecturer Leslie Primo puts the spotlight on Giotto's Adoration of the Magi and explores how the artist humanised one of the most famous stories from the Bible through his depiction of the three wise men.


Our Societies support hundreds of local arts and heritage projects. Each day we highlight a grant given in 2021. 

The Arts Society West Essex has recently awarded a grant to Revitalize, a national charity providing respite care for disabled people. The funds will go towards activities including pottery classes, arts and craft sessions, flower arranging and theatre trips.

All donations from the Artvent Calendar will go towards The Arts Society’s grant giving fund, which awards grants to help preserve our artistic heritage, support the skills of artists and makers, and improve access to the arts for all.

I think the Scrovegni Chapel is one of the most amazing places I have ever been.

Always so interesting to look at the art in terms of historical events (or not); thank you for a gentle presentation in keeping with the topic.
