Thursday 17 March 2011 - 10:30 until 11:00
Julian Treuherz (formerly the Director of the Walker Art Gallery) will give a lecture of George Rae (1817-1902). By 1865 Rae was the general manager of the North and South Wales Bank and with his wealth and discerning eye, filled his house (Redcourt in Birkenhead) with beautiful treasures. Amongst those were a number of wonderful paintings by Pre-Raphelite artists.
