This is the second of a series of three workshops being held at The Courtauld Institute of Art in 2012-2013 to explore the inter-relationship between art and death. These workshops have arisen from an informal group of doctoral students with shared interests in funerary monuments. This second workshop, again with diversity in region and period, will focus on the images and objects related to the nature and meaning of death. It will be accompanied by an exhibition by Rachael Allen of miniature models replicating objects from sites of death.
