George Stubbs: 'all done from Nature'
Wednesday 08 January 2020

 

VISIT TO THE MILTON KEYNES GALLERY

900 Midsummer Boulevard, Milton Keynes MK9 3QA

ON WEDNESDAY 8th JANUARY 2020

To see the current Exhibition

George Stubbs: ‘all done from Nature’

 

This Exhibition presents the first significant overview of this renowned 18th century artist-scientist in Britain for more than 30 years. It brings together 80 paintings, drawings and publications from the National Gallery’s portrait of the stallion ‘Whistlejacket’ to some pieces never previously seen in public.

Both the gallery and this Exhibition have had outstanding reviews in the national press.

Included in this visit is an hour’s lecture in the Sky Room given by the MKGallery Director, Anthony Spira. He will set this new, and already successful, new project in the architectural and artistic context of the development of Milton Keynes, before introducing us to George Stubbs and the selection of his art currently on display.

Our coach will leave Marlow Pound Lane Car Park at 9.30, then High Wycombe Park & Ride at 9.45.

On arrival at the Gallery coffee & biscuits will be served in the Sky Room.

Lecture starts at 11.30 followed by free flow visit to the exhibition.

Departure by coach at 2.45
