Colin Bailey – (Art History) RETIRED

Colin has now reluctantly retired from teaching at Higham Hall. We wish him all the best and thank him for ten years of wonderful, inspiring courses, and, in the earlier days, some Art Gallery visits!

  • Art Historian and author
  • BA, PhD, FSA, FSAScot, FRSA
  • Held a succession of top posts: head librarian at the Barber Institute at Birmingham University, keeper of British art at Liverpool’s Walker Art Gallery and head of Humanities at Edinburgh College of Art.
  • Trained linguist

Colin is one of few westerners to have been awarded a special permit to conduct tours in St Petersburg’s Hermitage Museum. He is a traditional lecturer used to the demands of an audience, their questions, their desires and expectations, with a vast array of knowledge of his subjects and a huge treasure trove of images he has collected of official collections worldwide.
