Céline Cachaud is an independent consultant in art, specialising in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century portrait miniatures in Paris. Céline's master’s thesis deals with Nicholas Hilliard’s trip to France (1576-79) and its consequences both for his art, and for the renewal in the production of portrait miniatures in France at the end of the sixteenth century. Céline is preparing a PhD thesis project on the theory and technical exchanges in painting miniatures between Paris and London during the Renaissance. She has published articles in, for example, Connaissance des Arts; she also founded and runs the online resources, Hillyarde & Co, and Un Art Anglais? for the promotion of the study of British art in France.

The talk and afternoon tea event is now fully booked.

General admittance to the exhibition is free and non-ticketed. Opening times are 9:30am - 6pm.
