Book Launch: Joseph Wright of Derby by Lucy Bamford & Jonathan Wallis
12:00pm - 1:30pm - Saturday 10 June
Joseph Wright of Derby was one of the most influential artists of the late 18th century and the city’s museum holds the largest and most comprehensive collection of his work anywhere in the world.
Derby-born Lucy Bamford has always had a passion for Joseph Wright and, since becoming the Senior Keeper of Art at Derby Museums, she has been able to focus on researching this fascinating artist. Lucy and Jonathan Wallis, also from Derby Museums, have teamed up to produce this guide to the museum’s collections and what it tells us about his life and work.
Join Lucy and Jonathan for a discussion on Joseph Wright of Derby and the paintings displayed in the museum.
