A unique opportunity to hear Stephen Duffy, curator of the exhibition The Discovery of Paris, Watercolours by British Artists at the Wallace Collection, on the very day of its opening! He will be joined by two exceptional experts of the eventful years of early 19th century France: Philip Mansel, author of Paris Between Empires, 1814-1852 and Professor Robert Tombs (St John’s College, Cambridge) author of That Sweet Enemy: The French and the British from the Sun King to the Present.
They will discuss the travels of British artists to France in the first part of the 19th century and share their insights on the fascination exerted by the City of Light during a period of continuous political upheavals.
