Richard Ormond is the grandson of Violet Sargent Ormond, sister of John Singer Sargent.
Former deputy director of the National Portrait gallery and director of the Maritime Museum, he is co-author of the nine volume Catalogue Raisonné of Singer Sargent’s work and curator of two recent major exhibitions of his portraits and watercolours as well as historical advisor to the Broadway Arts Festival.
Lachlan Goudie, known to most for presenting the BBC’s Big Painting Challenge, is an artist, writer and Arts broadcaster. Son of the Scottish artist Alexander Goudie, educated in Glasgow and Cambridge, Lachlan has written and presented the recent BBC series on The Story of Scottish Art and The Art of Industry. His latest exhibition of paintings of the shipyards of Govan and Rosyth is currently touring Britain.
Richard and Lachlan will explore the art and adventures of John Singer Sargent in what promises to be a lively and informative illustrated conversation exploring the technique and historical context of some of Sargent’s finest works.
