'The Tuscan Girl', William Holman Hunt

This afternoon’s picture of the month talk at Lady Lever Art Gallery saw Sandra Penketh discussing William Holman Hunt’s ‘The Tuscan Girl’, now available to download (mp3/transcript/links).

The painting is in a private collection and is currently on a long term loan to the Lady Lever Art Gallery. In her talk Sandra looks at Holman Hunt’s early years, the formation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, his time in Italy and his aptitude for painting portraits of children.
