The 2017 programme series has now been confirmed! The full programme will be uploaded shortly but we can announce the first seminar of the year:
Collaborative Doctoral Partnership PhD student
SELLING ‘SHADES’ BY THE SEA SHORE: PORTRAITURE IN 18TH CENTURY NAVAL PORTS
From Grandiose oil paintings by Joshua Reynolds to rapid cut-paper silhouettes and intricate miniatures, a diverse variety of portraits were produced in naval ports over the course of the 18th century. This seminar will explore examples of these artworks and the businesses of their producers, revealing how naval officers used portraiture to negotiate the emotional demands of their profession while on duty and when preparing to sail.
