In the first of our exhibition talks of 2019, Rosalind Whyte returns to Bell House to talk about Gainsborough's Family Album, an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.

Thomas Gainsborough was the first British artist to make a regular practice of painting and drawing himself and his family members. This exhibition currently at the National Portrait Gallery (until February 3rd 2019) features over fifty works from across the world, some of which have never been on display before. Gainsborough’s Family Album charts his career from youth to maturity, telling the story of an eighteenth-century provincial artist’s rise to metropolitan fame and fortune.

Rosalind Whyte is a Guide and Lecturer at the Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the Royal Academy, and is an accredited lecturer with the Arts Society.

Doors open at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm start, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine.

There are free and subsidised places available - please email [email protected] for more details.
