The trip was put together to raise funds for a permanently endowed postgraduate scholarship at London's Courtauld Institute of Art dedicated to Sophie Trevelyan Thomas (Sophie, who worked as deputy director in the Old Master Paintings department at Sotheby's, died last November).

The Sophie Trevelyan Thomas Scholarship will cover the tuition fees for one MA student each academic year, in perpetuity (a £125,000 target has been set). "This will be awarded each year to a student who is taking an MA in any module from the Medieval or Renaissance period, thereby reflecting Sophie's interests," the Courtauld says.
