A breakfast talk by Martin Postle (Paul Mellon Centre)

This talk looks at the relations of artists and their patrons during the eighteenth century, with close reference to the locations of their workshops in and around the neighbourhoods of Covent Garden and Bloomsbury. Artists to be discussed include William Hogarth, Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Gainsborough, George Romney, Richard Wilson, Benjamin West and James Barry.

This event is part of Bedford Square Festival 4 July - 7 July 2018


The aim of the Bedford Square Festival was to promote the culture based around a London Square, sharing this with our neighbours in Bloomsbury and beyond. We wanted to open the doors of the grand facades of the buildings in the Square and celebrate the culture that we pride ourselves on - art, literature, architecture, history, education, and more!
