The latest from our blog, AHA tutor Andy Stewart MacKay examines why you should study Art History and what you can do with it: "whilst all of us ‘look’, few of us really ‘see’." #arthistory #criticalthinking #Careers

Whether you're just starting at uni, studying for A-levels or working on your PhD, Tim Urban explains why we all procrastinate (watch out for the Panic Monster). You could always watch it tomorrow, of course ... #howtostudy #TEDtalk

It's for sale this November in New York ($80m) but you can see it exhibited by Christie's in London, Hong Kong and Los Angeles before then. #Hockney #iconic #doubleportrait https://buff.ly/2Mmdsul

We don't know what we're missing! Fascinating article about letters we used to have ... Did you know that the ampersand first appeared in some graffiti on a Pompeian wall around the first century CE. It wasn't called an "ampersand" at the time? It was just a ligature of the cursive letters “E” and “T” forming the Latin word et (and). And it replaced the Tironian note version of "and", invented by the Roman Marcus Tullios Tiro. https://buff.ly/2xbnloV

Filling your diary with things for the new season? Boost your cultural intake and treat yourself to one of our Lecture/Lunch and Exhibition days. The first one is Mantegna and Bellini at the National Gallery.
From Time Out "Venetian master artist Giovanni Bellini has made an indelible mark on the history of art, not least for the cocktail named in honour of the peachy hues of his paintings. His son-in-law, fellow Renaissance artist Andrea Mantegna was a fan of a slightly less festive artistic approach, specialising in dramatic pictures of suffering saints. However, the twosome had a long and fruitful artistic exchange, which this exhibition explores, often taking on the same subjects to different ends."

Keen to spark discourse, we advertised on the letters page of The Spectator this August. Competition for headlines was fierce!

The great Renzo Piano has already designed a replacement for the bridge which collapsed in his home town of Genoa. If you love him as much as we do, come to our Renzo Piano celebration on 27th November: lecture at the Linnean Society by Richard Stemp at 2pm followed by tea at The Keeper's House, Royal Academy and a visit to the exhibition. We're rounding the Renzo Piano day off with a visit to the Shard for discussion and evening drinks, but these tickets are limited. See the Dilettante area of our website for details. https://buff.ly/2CCWqbG

Meanwhile in Sicily ... @drrichardstemp has another brilliant detail of the day. Odeon: from the Ancient Greek meaning "singing place" or "building for musical competitions". #Classics #Taormina #culturalcuriosity https://buff.ly/2wZzZYR
