Our Forthcoming Events
Art, Architecture and Museums Series - Portraits and People
Portraits are probably the most accessible and popular form of art. In an age of celebrity they have come into greater prominence. What can we learn from them? How should portraiture be defined? This talk outlines some of the ways in which portraits work and why they are important.
Ludmilla Jordanova works at Durham University where she is Director of the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture. She was a Trustee of the National Portrait Gallery between 2001 and 2009.
