Artists of the Dutch Golden Age in the 16th and 17th centuries mastered a variety of painting genres from portraits, still lives and landscapes, to religious, maritime, and genre pictures. David Taylor is the Curator of Paintings and Sculpture for the National Trust. He is an expert on 16th and 17th century portraiture and has recently been responsible for a major exhibition of works in the National Trust collection by some of the most celebrated artists of the era. He will discuss this rich period of Dutch art in the context of the National Trust’s exceptional collections and his lecture will also set the scene for the forthcoming Ashmolean exhibition, The Young Rembrandt, which opens in early 2020. This is the first of our morning lectures so please note the start time of 10.30am.

Booking will open 24 May - CLICK HERE TO BOOK YOUR TICKETS.
