Event Description

Come along to Bruce Castle for this evening talk by Dr Jan Marsh, writer, curator, and 19th century portraiture specialist.

In the long decades of the Abolitionist campaigns against British and American slavery during the late 1700s and 1800s, citizens of African ancestry were a very visible presence in London, and were depicted by white artists in a variety of visual images from oil paintings to illustrations. This talk by Jan Marsh, the curator of the Black Victorians exhibition, brings their images into view.

Dr Jan Marsh was the curator and author of 'Black Victorians: black people in British Art 1800-1900' (published by Manchester Art Gallery and Lund Humphries, 2005).

The talk accompanies the current exhibition at Bruce Castle Museum, 'Black Georgian Londoners: Portraits, People and Perceptions', which brings together a rare collection of black portraiture and shows the depth of the black presence and communities in this country.

Doors open 7pm.

Refreshments available.

Kindly supported by the Fellowship of St John and the Friends of Bruce Castle.
