This one-day, conversation-oriented forum is dedicated to the study of works of art in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. It provides specialists with the opportunity to investigate original objects in person and to engage in scholarly dialogue in a small group setting. Scholars with expertise in the subject at hand are invited to explore questions related to the exhibition’s premise and themes with Portrait Gallery scholars.
