Pompeo Batoni: Grand Tour portraits and his Yorkshire patrons
| Bedern Hall
Richard Green, former curator of York Art Gallery and now an art consultant, will give an illustrated lecture on Pompeo Batoni's Grand Tour portraits, with special reference to those he painted for Yorkshire patrons. This is an ideal opportunity to learn more about this celebrated artist, who will be the subject of a National Gallery exhibition (20 February â€“ 18 May 2008), marking the 300th anniversary of his birth. Afterwards, enjoy a glass of wine and a buffet lunch in the Bedern, the BEthcentury dining hall of the Vicars Choral of York Minster.
