On 7 December 2017 Bristol Museum is holding a lunchtime talk "A brief history of art – our new guide to the art collection"
Join the author, Julia Carver, of their brand new Guide to the Art Collection, published by Bristol Books, for a lunchtime tour of the collection that inspired the guide.
Bristol Museum & Art Gallery holds over 1,300 paintings, more than 200 sculptures and some 20,000 works on paper, as well as installation art and video in its collection.
The new book offers an introduction to the institution and the collection, from the Renaissance period to the present day, with introductory essays for each historical period.
The Guide to the Art Collection is available in the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery shop or online for £7.50.
Designed to fit around your lunch hour, our lunchtime talks explore a selection of treasures from our exhibitions and collections.
Buy the book after the tour and get 20% off a coffee and cake in the Museum cafe.
