Presentation by Susan Foister (Director of Collections, National Gallery, London) on 'Native and foreign practice -- distinctive or different', given as part of the conference 'Tudor and Jacobean Painting: Production, Influences and Patronage' hosted by the National Portrait Gallery and the Courtauld Institute of Art in December 2010, and funded by the British Academy and The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
The Making Art in Tudor Britain project based at the National Portrait Gallery aims to help transform our understanding of artistic production in sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Britain. By undertaking a scientific survey on over 120 of the Gallery's most important portraits it is exploring the production, influences and patronage of painted imagery at this period. A three day conference in December 2010 with around 25 speakers explored these questions.
