'So noble a collection in a state so confused': Romney's time at Hampstead.

Alex Kidson on Romney

Alex Kidson will be discussing the life of artist George Romney, particularly his last years spent in Hampstead when he created the building now known as Romney’s House, on Holly Bush Hill. Alex is an art historian and the leading authority on George Romney, and curated the 2002 bicentennial exhibition on Romney that toured to the National Portrait Gallery, Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, and to the Huntington in San Marino, California.

This talk is in conjunction with Behind Closed Doors: A Biography of Romney’s House - an exhibition running from 21 June to 15 October 2017.
