The Yale Center for British Art is pleased to present an online lecture on Thursday, 21 April 2022, at 12pm by Tessa Murdoch about Huguenot artistic production in early modern London. Focusing on the museum’s collections, Murdoch examines an array of paintings, prints, drawings, maps, and sculpture with notable examples including François Gasselin’s 1692 drawing View of the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, and William Hogarth and Charles Grignion’s 1746 engraving Mr. Garrick in the Character of Richard III. This talk is based on research completed for her recent book Europe Divided: Huguenot Refugee Art and Culture (V&A publishing, 2021), which traces the international networks and artistic products created by French Protestant artists and craftsman in the wake of the Huguenot diaspora in the late seventeenth century.
