Members Event: How Hals Revolutionised Portraiture

Members Event: How Hals Revolutionised Portraiture

Date: Monday 4 October 2021
Time: 6.30-7.30 BST
Location: The Wallace Collection

For the past year, Dr Lelia Packer has been focusing her attention on Frans Hals and, in particular, on his portraits. Hals was popular for his ability to capture his patrons’ lively characters. Looking at the paintings roughly chronologically, one can trace the evolution of Hals’s style, from the fine, precise brushstrokes in his early portraits to the much looser, almost impressionistic, approach seen in his later works.

There will be an opportunity to visit the exhibition before the lecture from 5.30 to 6.30 BST.
