A Handful of Dust: Georgian Pastels from the Permanent Collection
Saturday 13 February to 18 Sunday September 2016
Wirth Gallery/ Free
As part of our ‘100 Years Here’ celebrations, the Holburne will be
exhibiting some of its rarely-shown but exquisitely beautiful
eighteenth-century British portraits in pastel. This mixture of china
clay, plaster and pigment is little more than coloured dust, yet when
applied to paper the effect can be magical.
Supported by Farrow & Ball
Open daily 10am to 5pm (11am to 5pm Sunday and Bank Holidays)
