Meet our authors and hear more about our new publications
Please join us for Book Night at the Paul Mellon Centre, where we will celebrate our latest publications by asking authors to discuss their research and answer questions about their books.
The evening will begin with welcome drinks in the Library and an introduction by the Centre’s Deputy Director for Research, Sarah Victoria Turner. Guests will then be able to attend short presentations by each of the night’s four authors, which we hope will give a lively and engaging snapshot of the exciting new research that we have recently published.

Elizabeth Prettejohn – Modern Painters, Old Masters: The Art of Imitation from the Pre-Raphaelites to the First World War
