JOSEPH WRIGHT OF DERBY: BATH AND BEYOND
A STUDY DAY
Monday 24 February, 2014
9am to 6pm
The Holburne Museum will bring together speakers from a variety of disciplines including regional historian Peter Borsay, Joseph Wright expert Stephen Daniels and the conservator Rica Jones to examine in greater depth Wright's little-known Bath period and its contexts. The morning session will explore the cultural life of Bath in the 1770s through recent historical research and ask whether Wright's place in this complex and creative society has been misunderstood. In the afternoon the focus will turn to other places: Derbyshire, Liverpool, Italy and the London exhibition galleries, and their influence on the artist's life and work.
Price: £45 (Concessions £40, Students £15), to include morning coffee, afternoon tea and a ticket for the exhibition>>
