This event will highlight the extraordinary collection of Fanshawe family portraits in the care of Valence House Museum, dating from the sixteenth to twentieth centuries. Museum curator Leeanne Westwood will introduce the collection on display and in store, and discuss her current Research Fellowship investigating the seventeenth-century portraits and the contemporary production of studio copies. A number of expert speakers will examine in-depth specific elements of the portrait collection, such as auricular frames, private archive sources, and ‘pregnancy portraits’.
