'Quatre Bras: The Battle and The Painting', with Chris Ryland

The Regimental Boardroom, 11am Thursday 17th September 2020

The painting ‘The 28th at Quatre Bras’ is probably one of the most recognised images of the British Army during the Napoleonic era. In this talk Chris Ryland covers the moment in the battle that the painting seeks to record and then explores the painting itself, the artist Elizabeth Thompson (later Lady Butler), and the significance of both in the History of Art. Some of the material Chris used has kindly been contributed by Ted Gott, Curator at the Melbourne Gallery of Art in Australia where the painting has hung since 1884.
