An upcoming talk has been arranged to visit to the photographic archive at Broughton House, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4JX, on Saturday 11 May.
Broughton was the home of the painter E A Hornel, and the Curator, Dr Michael McGeary, is very kindly giving us a talk on Hornel’s largely unknown photography, how it influenced his painting, and how the images have been preserved and digitised. This will be a fascinating insight into both an artist’s photographic collection and the techniques of preserving historic photographs, by a noted specialist in the field.
Please note that the talk will take place at 2 pm.
The house is in the care of the National Trust for Scotland, who have generously agreed to waive the usual entrance fee. However, there will be a donations jar for tea and coffee.
