Amina Wright - Portrait Miniatures in Gainsborough's Bath
Monday 9 December, 3.30pm
In the second half of the eighteenth century, Bath saw an extraordinary flourishing of the art of the portrait miniature. Artists came to the city from all over Europe to capture the likenesses - and guineas - of Bath's fashionable residents and visitors. Our latest addition to the Holburne's collection of these wonderfully intricate and intimate pictures is a beautiful self-portrait by painter and puppet-master John Lacon. Amina Wright, Senior Curator, will be presenting her research about Lacon, his rivals and his successors in Bath.
