Christina Bradstreet

£16/£15 conc./£14 Members & Patrons

Imagine the rearing horses, the clatter of hooves, the shouts of the riders and the smell of kicked-up dust by looking slowly at Rosa Bonheur’s The Horse Fair.

In a closed-off area of the Gallery, Christina Bradstreet will use mindfulness techniques to guide you in looking at and discussing the painting in small groups. 

Forget your expectations and experience the atmosphere of this newly-cleaned painting.
