ReCollection: John Hoppner
Hear from Professor Mark Ledbury
Join Professor Mark Ledbury, director of the Power Institute, University of Sydney, and learn about an enigmatic portrait of a French 18th-century dancer: Madame Hilligsberg by John Hoppner.
Meet at the information desk.
This is one of our ReCollection series of short talks celebrating the Art Gallery of NSW collection at lunchtime on Thursdays from 7 April to 30 June 2016. Each week an artist, curator or expert picks a work from the collection and addresses a particular premise, from their own personal inspiration to historical themes.
