Across Madrid Tours – in service of art and historic memory

AlmudenaCross-About

Dr Almudena Cros, holds a B.A (Hons) in History of Art, a Master of Arts in Venetian Art History, and a PhD in Late Medieval Art History.

An Artist’s Eye is currently in an intensive research and development phase in which we are also applying for Arts Council Funding (a research project in itself!), and so we’ve been a bit quiet on the blog.

Today we received a timely email from one of our great colleagues and supporters in Spain, Dr Almudena Cros of the Across Madrid Tours. Almu is also president of the Asociación de Amigos de las Brigadas Internationals . We will be linking our blogs in a gesture of mutual appreciation and from our side as a thank you for invaluable assistance with our research.

Tragically, Felicia Browne was killed in Aragon in August of 1936 and didn’t live to witness the lengthy siege of Madrid commencing in October of that year. In linking with Across Madrid Tours (in view also of Almu’s role with the amigos and her extraordinary civil war tour) we consider anew what Felicia volunteered, and gave her life for. Her incredible commitment to anti-fascism sits with us as we go about the business of preparing for our works phase.

More news on our research soon.
