Johan Zoffany Talk, March 16th 7.30pm, Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene

Writer and art historian Dr David Wilson, FSA, will give a talk on his book, published in 2014, ‘Johan Zoffany RA and The Sayer Family of Richmond’, which concerns one of the most prominent families in Richmond upon Thames in the second half of the eighteenth century.

Wilson will explain the intriguing circumstances in which Zoffany painted the picture and how it unlocks the complex history of the three characters it captures ‘in conversation’. The book was described in The British Art Journal review as ‘inspiring’ and ‘ground-breaking’.

Monday 16th March 7.30pm at Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene, Paradise Road, Richmond.

Tickets are £8 or £5 concession (RLHS members and Museum Supporters.) Tickets can be bought in person or by sending a cheque to the ‘Museum of Richmond’ and stamped addressed envelope to the Museum of Richmond, Old Town Hall, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond, TW9 1TP. They can also be purchased by credit card by calling 0208 332 1141 or by cheque or cash on the night. The concessionary price of £5 has generously been extended to members of the Kew Society.
