What comes to mind when we think of the Tudor court? Splendor, drama, power? Artists like Hans Holbein and Nicholas Hilliard have indelibly shaped our image of this tumultuous time. During this conversation, hear from a scholar whose recent discoveries in British archives have transformed our understanding of these artists and their royal sitters.

Free with Museum admission, though advance registration is required. Please note: For free programs, we generally over-register to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, though advance registration does not guarantee admission once the auditorium reaches capacity.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England.
