EVENT: Portrait of Swedenborg | Philip James de Loutherbourg | lunchtime talk
DATE: 7th July 2021 - 7th July 2021
TIME: 1pm - 2pm
VENUE: Swedenborg House
SPEAKER/S: Alex Murray and James Wilson
Each Wednesday at 1.00 pm there will be a brief talk and chance for discussion about one of the 27 objects selected for the new exhibition, The Story of Swedenborg in 27 Objects, with the talks being given by the curator Stephen McNeilly, Swedenborg House archivist Alex Murray and editor and former librarian James Wilson.
Please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org specifying which date you would like to attend. There is very limited capacity for these talks, so do contact us if you book and can no longer attend.
The first talk in the series sees curator Stephen McNeilly speak on one of the few portraits of Swedenborg said to have been taken from life, and one that has been intriguingly attributed to Philip James de Loutherbourg (1740-1812).
