The French Revolution is widely regarded as one of the critical moments in European history and the dawn of the modern era.

Its impact culturally was as great as it was politically and in this lecture, Gayna Pelham will explore some of the ways in which the ripples of this extraordinary event are still being felt culturally in society today.

Lunchtime talks

On Mondays and Thursdays, focus in on one painting with our talks in the Gallery, or explore wider themes in the collection at our in-depth theatre talks.
