This conference accompanies Elizabethan Treasures: Miniatures by Hilliard and Oliver, the first major exhibition on the Elizabethan and Jacobean miniature for many years. Leading experts reassess the English miniature in its wider cultural and geographical contexts, building on recent discoveries about authorship, patronage, function and meaning. The first day ends with an out-of-hours view of the exhibition and drinks reception. Tea and coffee are provided on both days.
Sponsored jointly by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, the National Portrait Gallery, London, the European Research Council and the University of Cambridge.
