Founded 1946, by Geoffrey Beard
In the past Gillian White has entertained the society with talks about the Tudors; Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and the Cavendish Family. On this occasion Gillian jumps forward a couple of hundred years to Queen Victoria. Throughout her long life Victoria was painted by the leading artists of the day. In this talk we’ll follow her story in a selection of these portraits, some familiar, some not so, and see a toddler develop into a symbol of the nation.
The next meeting of the Society will be on Thursday 18th October 2018 when
our speaker will be Dr. Gillian White, who will give an illustrated talk entitled:
'Queen Victoria: A Life in Portraits'
