An Illustrated Lecture by Dr. Francis Broun

About Dr. Francis Broun
Francis Broun came to Canada from Scotland in 1967. He has a B.A. from McGill and a Ph.D. from Princeton, both in art history. For fifteen years he worked at the AGO, teaching courses and helping to organise Old Master exhibitions like the Dutch paintings from the Mauritshuis and the Holbein drawings from the Queen's Collection. He also accompanied AGO trips to Florence, London and the River Danube. Since 1989 he has worked as a freelance lecturer, most regularly at OCAD University, the Royal Conservatory of Music (where he was Head of the Humanities Department) and the Women's Art Association of Canada. In 2009 he was a semi-finalist in TVO's best Lecturer competition. 

He still travels with groups of art lovers, mainly to North American cities like New York, Washington, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston. His most recent European trips include London, Vienna, Paris, and Provence.
