Times: 15.00-18.00 each day
Location: Zoom (online)

Next March, the Wallace Collection will host a conference drawing together an international panel of eminent scholars working on the Spanish Habsburg Court and Spanish art. The conference will focus on one of the best-loved paintings at the Wallace Collection, Prince Baltasar Carlos in the Riding School.

The first day will explore the Wallace painting and the questions raised by its recent restoration, including Velázquez’s technique, and the broader context that might have influenced the composition. The second day will explore the differences between the Wallace picture and the fully accepted autograph version in a private collection, aiming to find out more and open up the complexities of these two portraits.

Full programme to follow. Registration will open in early 2021. To receive notification of when registration opens, please register your interest here.

This conference is generously supported by the Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH).
