Deconstructed: The NSLM Sporting Screen
The National Sporting Library & Museum, Middleburg, Virginia, 12 April — 15 September 2019

Deconstructed: The NSLM Sporting Screen centers on a unique decorative object from the NSLM’s permanent collection. Recently conserved, the four-panel screen is comprised of paintings and prints showing 18th-century racing portraits on one side and manège training (an early form of dressage) on the other. The exhibit will cast light on a captivating era in British sport, art, and literature.

As noted in the Summer 2019 bulletin for the YCBA:

The exhibition features seven works from the Yale Center for British Art by John Vanderbank, including the painting A Young Gentleman Riding a Schooled Horse (1728–29).
