Encountering Beauty: Marble

Welcome to Encountering Beauty, a series of podcasts brought to you by Masterpiece London, with Thomas Marks, editor of Apollo magazine. These podcasts we’ll be exploring the enduring relevance and resonance of what have long been some of the most revered and versatile materials that artists have had at their disposal.
 


In this episode we’ll be hearing about the marvels of marble, a material that since antiquity has captured the imaginations of sculptors and architects. Across cultures and centuries, it has conveyed power, grandeur and endurance – and yet it has also been the substance of some of the most humane and intimate sculptures that we know, and of delicate designs.

This episode features Alessandra di Castro, whose family has been dealing antiques in Rome since 1878, and whose renowned gallery in Piazza di Spagna focuses on Old Master paintings, sculptures and works of art; and Francis Sultana, one of the world’s leading interior and furniture designers, and CEO of David Gill Gallery.
