Art historian Alastair Laing recently retired as Curator of Pictures & Sculpture at the National Trust, having for almost 27 years looked after the many works of art in the Trust’s care. He was responsible for organising the 1995 centenary exhibition In Trust for the Nation at the National Gallery.
His particular interest is François Boucher, exhibitions of whose work he helped mount in America and France. He is currently preparing a catalogue raisonné of Boucher’s drawings.
In his lecture he will take stock of Anthony Powell’s interest in sculpture as revealed in the pagesof Dance, in his memoirs and in his writings on the visual arts.
The Wallace’s restaurant will be open following the lecture for those wishing to dine; table booking on 020 7563 9505.
