Curt can always be depended on to give thoughtful, vivacious, visual lectures that cover so many different types of interesting information. Art, architecture, history, biography, animals, humor, books, love, and betrayal. Always something for everybody! And the quantity, variety, and well captioned photos are always better than anyone else's!
Since the pandemic struck, and I’ve not been able to travel, I’ve been participating in webinars presented by some of the most prominent and prestigious cultural institutions in America. Curt's class that I attended yesterday on the art, architecture, and collections of British country houses beat them all. It was by far the best I’ve experienced.
Curt is a cross between Kenneth Clark and James Lees-Milne, but with much more verve and warmth.
I've listened to dozens of webinars and lectures and want to applaud Curt as being one of the absolute BEST presenters I've experienced. He educates the listener, sets information in context, shares interesting anecdotes about the houses and the families who owned and/or lived in them, which makes the history come alive. Those of us lucky enough to subscribe to one of his seminars or tours are fortunate indeed.
Curt is a national—no, an INTERnational—treasure!
The sympathetic YouTube algorithmic gods came to my rescue when I discovered Curt's lecture on Robert Adam! Utterly, utterly fascinating with superb pictures! I can't wait to watch his other lectures.
I always enjoy Curt so much. His enthusiasm is infectious, and while the photos dazzle my eyes, his approach to the topic brings a smile to my lips.
Curt is an outstanding, dynamic, and knowledgeable presenter. He could speak on Tang and it would be interesting. Please keep these lectures coming!
I can’t get enough of these online lectures. Please do more!
Curt is fabulous, as always. I can't wait to take his tours when travel becomes possible again.
Because I've enjoyed Curt's lectures so much, I've signed up for his three-part series on British country houses. I can't wait...
Curt is an engaging, informative, and fun speaker. Possibly the best I've ever heard.
It is always a delight to share Curt's enthusiastic love for his work and his encyclopedic knowledge!
Curt is a gift beyond measure. The subject matter, coupled with his knowledge, confidence, presentational style, and humorous asides kept me enraptured. Thanks for making this sober day a delight.
What a joy to see all this beauty…..thank you, Curt, and your educated, elegant taste!
As a classicist, I often find history after 330 AD tedious. What a glorious discovery to find Curt's programs and his approach to history. He combines the grainy details with the big picture...never forgetting context. He's also extremely funny and I love his cat!
Curt is a great presenter. The topic moves right along and is interesting all the way. I've attended other webinars where the speakers stumble and are just reading the material. Bravo, Curt!
Curt's lectures are just superb! He is an excellent teacher—his observations are clear and his opinions perfectly judged.
I have watched Curt's lectures repeatedly and have learnt so much. He is just a great pleasure to listen to.
Everything Curt talks about keeps me enraptured!
I know the English don’t tend to gush, but I have to say that I was absolutely enthralled by Curt's presentation. His delivery, the construction of the lecture, and the pitch were all perfect. He never spoke down, gave just the right amount of background information, and had such a lovely, informative, and relaxed manner.
Every time I hear Curt lecture it makes me feel better!
Curt's ability to distill beauty and mix it with entertaining stories is unparalleled.
