Juliet Heslewood


"I thought Juliet was an excellent Tour Director. She certainly knows her subject in depth and is very good at projecting her considerable knowledge in a user-friendly manner."


Juliet studied History of Art at London University.  For thirty years she lived in France where she became a lecturer on art and architecture in the Midi-Pyrenees area and gained a Masters degree in English Literature at Toulouse University.  She has devised and led study tours in some seven areas of France.  As a writer, she has published many books - folktales, fiction and art - of which her History of Western Painting for Young People was translated into twelve languages.  Returned to England she continues to write and hosts informal art history classes as well as lecturing widely for organisations including the Arts Society and the Ashmolean Museum.  Her most recent book is Van Gogh: A Life in Places which led her to take part in the television series Art on the BBC.
