The Mithras Lecture - Art Scholars at Goldsmiths Hall

Wednesday 28th October 2015

This year the annual Mithras Lecture was about Art Fraud, delivered by DS Claire Hutcheon of the Metropolitan Police Art & Antiques Unit New Scotland Yard. Claire gave a fascinating account of how the unit was set up and the techniques they use to pursue cases of art theft. More than 200 people came to Goldsmiths Hall to hear the lecture including over 40 representatives of the Livery Companies. We were entertained by the Art Scholars to a very enjoyable reception in the grand rooms of the Goldsmiths Hall, always a treat to see the splendour of the building
