This lecture will focus on the work of artist and architect Inigo Jones. Between 1605 and 1640 Jones was also the principal designer for the costumes and sets used in the magnificent theatrical entertainments, or masques, staged at the court of the Stuart kings James 1 and Charles 1. Jones’ brilliant designs and technical innovations, including moveable scenery, the proscenium arch and mood lighting, transformed theatre production and paved the way for the early modern stage.
