CASANOVA’S exploits, both in and out of the bedroom, were the subject of a talk to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the National Society of Decorative and Fine Arts.
Members, friends and guests of Chester Decorative and Fine Arts Society gathered at the King’s School to hear Ian Kelly, Wirral-born actor, presenter and acclaimed writer of historical biographies romp through the life of Giacomo Casanova, one of the most entertaining and notorious figures of the 18th century.
Kelly’s latest book is Casanova’s Grand Tour – Art, Travel and Seduction in The Enlightenment .
At the end of the talk, a celebration cake was cut by the national chairman, Sue Sellars, of Tarporley.
