Birds, food, animals, dolls and jewellery feature in Tudor portraits of children. What do these objects mean, and what do they tell us about Tudor childhood? In this conversation we will look at three paintings in Picturing Childhood: A New Perspective at Chatsworth, and discuss the ways in which symbolic objects reveal meaning whilst adding to the visual interest of the artwork.
Join Picturing Childhood curator Gill Hart in conversation with Liz Waring, Property Curator of Hardwick Hall for this special event held in the Chatsworth Hartington Room.

Doors will be open from 10.45am. A cup of tea or coffee is included in your ticket.
