The Paul Mellon lectures

Global landscape in the age of Empire

Named in honour of the philanthropist and collector of British art, Paul Mellon, these biennial lectures are given by a distinguished historian of British art.

Tim Barringer hosts this year’s lectures, 'Global landscape in the age of Empire', examining how British 18th- and 19th-century artists responded to the civilisations of Australia, the Caribbean, India and the Americas.

Book all five lectures and save.
