Topic – Messenger or Missile – Angels with Glad Tidings, Doom, Gloom or Perdition

This lecture, by Caroline Holmes looks at angels, familiar and fantastic, playing major and minor roles, in centuries of paintings, engravings, illustrations and sculptures.
Angelic references also abound in Islamic and Jewish traditions, the latter beautifully evoked in Chagall’s ‘Bible Message’. She will also contrast the beauty and light of cherubim and seraphim with the dark, fiery abyss of Satan and contemplate the ‘Angel of the North’.
Caroline is based near Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk. She is an international lecturer, broadcaster, author and consultant designer specialising in evoking historic, artistic and symbolic references.

She is a lecturer for the Royal Horticultural Society, the National Gallery of Scotland, the Landmark Trust and is a part-time tutor and course director for the University of Cambridge ICE.

She is best known for being a garden historian of ancient, modern and contemporary places, people and plants.
