The Romanian Cultural Institute in London hosts, on the International Holocaust  Remembrance Day, a tribute to the Jewish art historian Sanda Miller well known for her authoritative study of the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brâncuși and for her  invaluable contribution to the history of fashion and visual arts. Sanda Miller was, until her untimely death in 2021, a research fellow at Southampton Solent University, UK a visiting lecturer at the Marangoni Institute, London, UK and the Milan Fashion Institute, Italy. Moreover, she was one of the constant and graceful friends of RCI London and RCI.

The event will start at 7 PM and will include a piano recital by  Lady Rose Cholmondeley, Cristiana Achim and  Ricardo Cinalli with an eclectic repertoire combining  Fr.Chopin, Eric Satie, Béla Bartok and tango, one of Sanda’s beloved pieces.

Sanda Miller’s book entitled “Images on the Page - A Fashion Iconography” an interdisciplinary work published by the prestigious Bloomsbury in 2021 will be presented as well. The book proposes a radical alternative to conventional approaches in the history of fashion, restoring a series of aesthetic questions missing from the contemporary scholarship.

This date was specially chosen to mark the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorating one of the most dramatic events in history  in which the famous historian tragically lost a part of her family.
