THURSDAY 28 FEBRUARY AT 2.00 pm
SPEAKER: Tansy Curtin, Curatorial Manager, Bendigo Art Gallery.
SUBJECT: Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits at the Bendigo Art Gallery March to July 2019
The exhibition is drawn from the outstanding collection of the National Portrait Gallery,
London. Covering the period from the 16th century to the present, it examines the ways in which royal portraits
were impacted by both the personalities of individual monarchs and wider historical change.
The exhibition includes significant portraits from five royal dynasties: the Tudors, the Stuarts, the Georgians, the Victorians
and the Windsors and offers insights into the development of British art through the work of such major artists as
Sir Peter Lely to Cecil Beaton and Annie Liebovitz.
Members are welcome to join the Art Circle table for lunch before the talk at 12.30 pm. Please book at Reception or online.
