Roland has an extensive knowledge of Tudor art, particularly portraiture, and blogs about it regularly at his TudorFaces blog. Recently, his view that an image in the Black Book of the Garter was based on Anne Boleyn caused some controversy online and his research is top notch.
The aim of our informal live chats is to debate a certain topic. We don't fire questions at an expert, as we do in our expert live chats, we share our views, pose questions to each other and enjoy 'talking Tudor'. However, as Roland does know his stuff, I'm sure he won't mind us asking him questions about Tudor art and the work he has done. Have a browse of his blog and see if there's something you want to bring up with him during the chat.
We'll be giving away a copy of his book at the chat too, so do come along!
