Director’s Choice: Ramsay’s Rosamund Sargent

Home Event Director’s Choice: Ramsay’s Rosamund Sargent
A Lunchtime Talk with Dr Chris Stephens, Director Holburne Museum

In his first lecture as Director of the Holburne Museum, Chris Stephens handpicks one of his favourites from the collection: Allan Ramsay’s portrait of Rosamund Sargent (1749). Join Chris as he considers why the work of an eighteenth-century Scottish portraitist, trained in Edinburgh, Italy and London and renowned for having been ‘formed to paint women’, is so appealing for someone like himself,  mostly engaged with modern art.
