Valentines Special: lunch-time talk for lovers

12 – 12.30pm

event Details

Bring your valentine and join Assistant Curator Emma Jameson for a love-themed art talk on one of the most popular works currently on display at Auckland Art Gallery: Married by Walter Sadler. Emma will examine the style, symbolic elements and interpretations of this 19th-century painting. Does this scene depict a couple completely at ease with each other in a romantic garden setting, or has the initial warmth of love already waned in this marriage?

Limited spots available, booking required.
