Talk on Allan Ramsay

From: Chantal-Helen Thuer <c_thur<-a>
Date: Saturday, March 8, 2014
Rica Jones, Paintings Conservator, will speak on

"Ramsay's Technique in Context and Perspective"
Grand Robing Room at Freemason's Hall
60 Great Queen Street
London WC2B 5AZ
Wednesday, 16 April 2014

Close to both Covent Garden and Holborn Tube Stations.

Allan Ramsay took London's art world by storm when he set up his
painting practice in Covent Garden in the late 1730s and his work
remained fashionable for the next two decades.  One aspect of his
portraiture was much commented on--he painted the faces in shades of
red before applying the more naturalistic flesh tones.  This paper
was first written for the catalogue of the exhibition 'Allan Ramsay:
Portraits of the Enlightenment' at the Hunterian Museum and Art
Gallery, Glasgow (October 2013 to January 2014).  The author will
illustrate this feature of Ramsay's work, examine its significance
to Ramsay and place it in the context of the times.

Rica Jones trained as an art historian before studying the
conservation of paintings.  Until 2012 she worked as a conservator
at the Tate Gallery and published extensively on techniques of
painting in Britain from the 16th through the 18th centuries.  She
continues to work in both fields in the private sector.
