Chaired by David Taylor, Curator of Pictures and Sculpture, National Trust

Join us for a study day examining the outstanding portrait collection at Ham House near Richmond, the seventeenth-century home of the Duke and Duchess of Lauderdale. We will have expert presentations on aspects of the collection’s early provenance and character, a later generation’s relationship with John Constable, and a chance to see and discuss items of eighteenth-century clothing rarely seen on display. The study day will also consider more widely the nature of curatorship at National Trust’s historic properties, the challenges, opportunities, and priorities.

Early booking is recommended. Places for independent researchers and PG students are limited.

Please download the programme and booking information, and return the latter by post or email attachment.
