MWGEF ART LECTURE 2014

TUDOR PORTRAITS - ROYALTY, ROGUES and LOVERS

by Jennifer Mulchinnock

 

This year’s Art Lecture took place on Wednesday 1st October 2014, in our regular meeting hall at Maidenhead United Reform Church.

The presentation started with the history of the Tudors and the many momentous historic events that took place during their reigns.

The lecturer then proceeded to explain how the Tudors used symbols and fashion to impress and show a united front. She used a selection of portraits from 1485 to 1603, many of which are on display at the National Portrait Gallery, to introduce us to Tudor kings and queens, statesmen and courtiers.

Our members and guests were delighted to welcome Jennifer again and to learn so much about this amazing collection. We were all inspired to revisit the National Portrait Gallery and its satellite gallery at Montecute House in Somerset.
