Paul Delaroche: Painting History

Dates: Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 November 2022
Times: 14.00–16.00 GMT
Location: Online (Zoom Webinar) 
Tutor: Clare Ford-Wille

Description: Paul Delaroche (1797–1856) is best known for his monumental paintings depicting dramatic moments in history. While the Wallace Collection displays a number of more intimately-sized works by Delaroche, they nonetheless typify his ability to bring history and literature vividly to life.

Featured in the new display, The Lost King: Imagining Richard III, his evocative replica painting of Edward V and the Duke of York in the Tower is our inspiration to take a closer look at this remarkable artist, whose dramatic scene-setting, meticulous detailing and fascinating character relationships demand attention. Why did this French artist represent so much English history and literature? How were his paintings originally received, and where do they fit within the wider context of the history of art?
