About

Women as both artists and sitters have been historically overlooked and anonymised, often seen as types rather than individuals.  

Join Gallery Educators Kate Devine, Holly Morrison and Jenny Staff as they explore the lives behind the paint in three National Gallery paintings: ‘Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando’, ‘A Black Woman’ and ‘The Ugly Duchess’.   

After the talk, Kate, Holly and Jenny will be happy to answer your questions in a live Q&A
