Whilst tracing the whereabouts of paintings in the Castle Howard collection at a given moment is a relatively straightforward matter, comprehending the changing relationships between individual pictures (and artists), and their neighbours on the walls gives rise to more complicated enquiries. Collections and their hangs are always in flux, but just what are the motives for, and consequences of, moving pictures?

Wednesday, 28 February 2018, 18:00–20:00, at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, Bedford Square, London. Book here.
