Mass migration and the arts in Britain
by Vivienne Lawes

THE LECTURE

The mass migration of the French Protestant Huguenots in the 16th and 17th centuries impacted the arts, the military, and finance sectors of the countries to which they fled following Catholic persecution in their homeland. This lecture focuses on three areas of the arts impacted by the migration: the silk weaving industry; the silversmiths and ceramicists introducing Rococo style into Britain; and the baroque style of the great Huguenot designer, Daniel Marot.
