Tours & Study Days WithGeoffrey Nuttall
After reading Philosophy at UCL, a short service commission in the Royal Artillery, and an MPhil in Linguistics at the University of Cambridge, Geoffrey Nuttall worked for many years as an academic publisher, until in 2007 he followed his wife Paula into art history. He took his MA at Birbeck College and his PhD at the Courtauld Institute, investigating the relationship between the merchants and bankers of the rich Tuscan city of Lucca and their royal and aristocratic clients across Europe. He is now an associate lecturer at the Courtauld Institute. In 2014 he was a fellow at the Huntingdon Library in California and in 2017 he and Paula will be based in Florence as the joint scholars in residence at the Dutch Institute, working on the role of the Lucchese as purveyors of works of art to the Este court in Ferrara.Image above: The Bouciaut Master, The Trenta Family at Prayer, the Trenta Missal, Biblioteca Statale, Lucca.
