Michael

I'm a Senior Fellow of Institute of Commonwealth Studies, degrees in Physics (1974) and Art History (2008). An art historian, academic and blogger, my specialism and passion is the black presence in European art. I’ve spoken on the black presence at many places including the British Library, Tate Britain and the National Archives. The black presence takes different forms: from subjects of economic capital to creators of cultural capital; explicit and implicit; musicians, kings, slaves, servants, saints and artists, sometimes just as people I look forward sharing my passion with you.
