The National Gallery Curator talk at The Riverside Gallery, Haverfordwest

The Riverside Library, Gallery and Visitor Information in Haverfordwest is welcoming a very special exhibition this spring, as part of the National Gallery Masterpiece Tour, sponsored by Christie’s.

An exciting series of events and activities are being planned to support the exhibition, including a special talk about a masterpiece painting by one of the National Gallery’s curators.

Join Laura Llewellyn, Associate Curator at the National Gallery, in a discussion on Hélène Rouart in her Father’s Study by Edgar Degas and explore with us the history of the painting itself, the techniques employed, the subject and the artist himself.

The event will take place on Saturday 14 May 2022, at 11am, at the Riverside Gallery, Haverfordwest. This is an English language event and booking will be essential due to limited places. To book please see https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/glan-yr-afon/t-gaxyevgg

The exhibition will be open from 14 May – 3 September 2022 and will run alongside the current exhibition Pembrokeshire: Past & Present.
