ICMA AT THE COURTAULD LECTURE

Since 1999, the International Center of Medieval Art, New York and The Courtauld Institute of Art, London have teamed up to present an annual lecture at The Courtauld. Delivered by a North American-based scholar, this lecture series aims to strengthen transatlantic contacts among medievalists from the university and museum worlds.
