Expand your knowledge of Richard Parkes Bonington’s brief life and the volatile times in which he worked, with renowned expert, Patrick Noon. Delving deeply into specific aspects of Bonington’s achievements, we’ll learn about the influence of J.M.W. Turner on his younger admirer, as well as the significance of the relationship between Bonington and Eugène Delacroix for the genesis of modern painting in France.
About the speaker: Patrick Noon retired as Emeritus Chair of the Department of Paintings at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, where he had been the Senior Curator from 1997 to 2020. Prior to Minneapolis he was a founding Curator of Prints, Drawings and Rare Books at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, where he joined the curatorial staff in 1977. He has published and lectured extensively on 18th- and 19th-century French and British art.
Among the consequential exhibitions Patrick Noon has organised are Richard Parkes Bonington: ‘On the Pleasure of Painting’ with the Louvre (1992); Crossing the Channel: British and French Painting in the Age of Romanticism with Tate Britain (2003); and Delacroix and the Rise of Modern Art with the National Gallery (2015). In 2008/10 he published the catalogues raisonnés of the paintings and drawings of Richard Parkes Bonington. His monograph, Bonington, le virtuose romantique, appeared in 2023.
