Talk, Mon 18 May 2020

Details

After our Annual General Meeting, we will have a talk by Johanna Coombes, who is a Richmond Heritage Guide and also the Richmond Local History Society’s Membership Secretary.

Over the years many artists have visited or lived in Richmond, Twickenham and Kew. They have been attracted by the River Thames, parks, palaces and open spaces. Some artists have concentrated on portraits. Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Joshua Reynolds and Joseph Mallard William Turner are well known names, but you may not have heard of some of the other artists that Johanna has identified. We will explore their local connections and enjoy images of a few of their paintings.

Following Johanna’s talk, there will be our customary end-of-season party with drinks and nibbles.
