Sympathetic dogs and tiger-skin rugs: Animal painting in the Picture Gallery
Animal pictures have always been popular, but often dismissed as ‘low’ and frivolous. But according to recent shifts in academia and activism, we need to pay more attention to animals wherever we find them. This talk by Art Collections Cataloguer, Alison Wright, explores the politics of animal representation in the Picture Gallery, from polar bears to pet dogs of several shapes and tempers.
Please meet the speaker outside the Picture Gallery (Victorian corridor entrance).
Admission free, no booking necessary.
