Pets in Victorian paintings

Picture Gallery

Dr Lesley Hoskins and Professor Jane Hamlett, explore pets in Victorian paintings. Taking Briton Riviere’s painting Sympathy as their starting point they will look at images of cats, dogs and other companion animals from the era - an important part of a growing celebration of pet animals that increasingly emphasised their emotional capacities. This talk accompanies the pop-up exhibition which will be in the gallery for the day.

Admission free, no booking necessary.
