Talk: Reflections on Forgotten Masters

William Dalrymple and Dr Xavier Bray in Conversation

As our 'Forgotten Masters: Indian Painting for the East India Company' exhibition nears its final weeks, join renowned writer and historian William Dalrymple and the Director of the Wallace Collection, Dr Xavier Bray, as they reflect on curating this unprecedented exhibition. Did the curators achieve what they first set out to accomplish? And how might we look differently at the centuries-old fusion of British and Indian artistic styles in the context of today’s anti-racism movement?

This free talk will take place on 20 August at 3pm BST, and Zoom registration is now open.

Course: Making Connections with Art

The Wallace Collection’s extraordinary range of painting and sculpture offers inspiring and thought-provoking images which are as relevant today as when the works were first created. Discover how we can make meaningful connections with them by looking slowly.

Focusing on arresting images of saints, rococo depictions of mythology, representations of everyday life alongside abundant displays of still life objects, this two-day course is designed to help you develop visual analysis skills through looking at art in detail. Concentrating on select paintings but with references to sculptural works, you’ll develop core skills in active looking that can be applied beyond the course, as well as increasing your familiarity with the artworks in focus.

The course will take place on 8 and 9 September at 2pm BST, and tickets are on sale now.
