Conference: The vanishing man, in pursuit of Velázquez

10 Jun 2016

Laura Cumming will give a talk on her highly acclaimed book “The Vanishing Man: In Pursuit of Velázquez” this evening 10 June at 18:30 at National Gallery.

Laura Cumming will discuss how a Velázquez painting changed both her life and that of John Snare’s – the Victorian bookseller at the heart of her latest book.

Cumming is joined by Letizia Treves, Curator of Italian and Spanish Paintings 1600–1800, to debate how and why Velázquez’s paintings mesmerise us and why some were overlooked and misattributed for centuries.
