Adequate representation would land me in serious copyright trouble, so I am showing reproductions of the originals, and providing a research list of publications relevant to the study of the Narrative. If any offend I will immediately strike them from my site.

 

Dedicated to my most powerful and delightful Professor of Art History, Peter Lasko, who made me the person and scholar I am today. I did a paper on stylistic changes in manuscript painting for him, and just loved it. At a seminar I tried an argument which failed, and caused a snigger, Peter sprang to my defence."It takes an intelligent man to change his mind." He got me a grant for Post Graduate research and went on to be Boss of the Courtauld who didn't deserve him. My abiding memory of him was bouncing across his front garden on a Space Hopper. Peter, you were a great scholar, a gentleman and possessed of a large sense of humour.
