Welcome to the Lebrecht Music & Arts January 2011 Newsletter
Happy New Year! We hope you all enjoyed the holidays. We are very excited to be welcoming in 2011 with the launch of our new collection – Art Images at Lebrecht.
To celebrate our unveiling of www.art-images.co.uk, we have chosen a detail from Titian’s dramatic painting, Bacchus and Ariadne, as our header design. It is one of many spectacular paintings by the Renaissance master that we now hold in our archive.

Art Images at Lebrecht

Lebrecht Music & Arts has launched a new website www.art-images.co.uk –   a specialist archive for art and artists. www.art-images.co.uk carries extensive coverage of Russian, French, Italian and British art – many of these images of paintings, sculptures, posters, caricatures are rarely seen, some are so well known they have become a backdrop to the modern world.

These paintings complement the music and literary fields that Lebrecht has been active in for 18 years.
