About the Author

Alicia Salter

Alicia Salter M.A. (Oxon) M.Phil. (Bath)

Alicia Salter read history at St. Hilda’s College, Oxford. After marriage and three children, she graduated to Art History (The Study Centre at The Victoria and Albert Museum), specialising in the history of architecture – her great love. For seventeen years, together with two friends, she ran her own small business – Art Circle – concentrating on the great wealth of art to be found in a city such as London. Some years later research into the work of Sir Robert Taylor led to an interest in Robert Adam and his archaeological survey of Diocletian’s palace in Split.

Alicia has lectured extensively for NADFAS РThe National Society for the Decorative and Fine Arts Рand taken clients to all the major cities of Western Europe, while working for Swan Hellenic Cruises and Martin Randall Travel.

Lecture tours to major museums in the USA and Australia were followed by exciting new discoveries in Eastern Europe made accessible by the fall of communism, among which were Croatia and Serbia – the inspiration for this book.
