Alec Cobbe – Pictures at Hatchlands The Venetian and English Renaissance in Surrey

Among his discoveries is one of Titian’s great mythological Poesie, Venus and Adonis. The identifications of the only known life portrait of William Shakespeare and his literary patron, the youthful 3rd Earl of Southampton, which were front-page news all over the world, will feature in the talk.
Coffee and biscuits will be available in the Dining Room on arrival, included in the ticket price.
