CURATOR TOUR: BASIC INSTINCTS
Tour Oct 01, 2017 3:00pm
Explore our exhibition Basic Instincts with Museum Curator Kathleen Palmer, who leads a tour for visitors. Curated by Dr Jacqueline Riding, Basic Instincts explores Georgian attitudes to love, desire and female respectability through the radical paintings of Joseph Highmore. A highly successful artist and Governor of London’s Foundling Hospital, Joseph Highmore (1692-1780) is best known as a portrait painter of the Georgian middle class. However, during the 1740s his art dramatically shifted as he turned his focus to societal attitudes towards women and sexuality. This first major Highmore exhibition for 50 years explores a ten-year period of disruptive commentary in his art, reflecting his engagement with the work of the new Foundling Hospital and its mission to support desperate and abused women.
