Online talk: Tuesday 5 March 2024, 8pm

Jennifer Scott, Director of Dulwich Picture Gallery will present a history of taste through masterpieces from the Gallery's Collection. From its outset, the Gallery has been at the forefront of innovation and creativity. With reference to Sir John Soane's architectural vision, Jennifer will outline the defining features of works from Raphael to Rembrandt, questioning: What about these paintings is innovative? What made them appealing to collectors in the long eighteenth century? What is their enduring appeal? 

Jennifer Scott has been Director of Dulwich Picture Gallery since April 2017, with responsibility for the artistic vision, management, and strategic leadership of the world’s first purpose-built public art gallery.
