Fashion in Miniature: Portraits, Personalities, Possessions

Wednesday 13 – Friday 15 March, 11am-3pm

The Wallace collection is such a treasure trove of exquisite objects – where to start? We start with portrait miniatures – designed to be worn on the body, carried in the hand, looked at in intimate settings, coveted, and collected. From the Renaissance, through the Regency and into the Victorian era we will focus on contextualising these objects. Richly illustrated lectures will enable us to explore fine details and decipher the meanings encoded in the dress depicted. The personalities of those depicted in them, as well as those who collected them, will be illuminated through discussion of further fine art and satirical sources in paint and print. Taught by Jacqueline Ansell.

Wednesday – Worn on the body? The meanings encoded in portrait miniatures

Thursday - Women in White? The Fine art of Female Fashion 1780-1880

Friday – The Power of Possession: The Collectors and their Characters
