Do the Wright thing at the Holburne...for free

Take advantage of the Holburne Museum’s offer of free entry for staff and students by visiting their latest exhibition - Joseph Wright of Derby: Bath and Beyond.

The University has negotiated with the Museum that staff and students will have free access to all temporary exhibitions - on presentation of a Library card - meaning a saving of up to £6.95. Why not take the opportunity to visit the exhibition The Telegraph are calling ‘a cracking show’?

A contemporary of Thomas Gainsborough and Joshua Reynolds, Joseph Wright of Derby lived and worked in Bath between November 1775 and June 1777. He came here to paint portraits - hoping to build on the success of Gainsborough who had recently left for London - but struggled to make his mark. Instead, he spent his time developing landscape studies he had made in Italy and exploring subjects from contemporary literature. It was at this time that he produced some of the most beautiful and dazzling works of his career. 

Also on display is Kathy Dalwood’s new installation The ‘Secret Society – a Ballroom Banquet, and Stereoscopic Photographs of Pablo Picasso by Robert Mouzillat.

The Holburne Museum sits within its own grounds at the end of Great Pulteney Street and is open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday (and Bank Holidays) 11am to 5pm.
