Duncan Robinson — director emeritus of Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum and former director of the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut — will present a free lecture titled “Casanova in Hogarth’s London” at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8, in the Piano Pavilion Auditorium.

The London that Casanova visited was an expanding metropolis, a place of stark contrasts and social tensions. In this lecture, Robinson will explore the way the art of Hogarth and his contemporaries captured and commented on the fabric of London and the varied fortunes of its inhabitants.

Robinson is a graduate of both Cambridge and Yale Universities. He began his career as the assistant keeper, later keeper, of paintings and drawings at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, in 1970. He has published and lectured extensively, primarily on British art, and served as a board member or trustee of numerous cultural institutions.
