ADFAS lecture by Martin Heard on Emma Hamilton - Nelson's Mistress and Artists' Muse
Corner Baylis Street and Fitzmaurice Street, Wagga Wagga, NSW, 2650, Australia
24th May 2019
Emma Hamilton is best remembered as the love of Admiral Lord Nelson. However in her time she became a great celebrity known all over Europe, a great beauty, an accomplished dancer and singer and the subject of over 100 paintings and drawings by famous artists of the period. She was famous before she met Nelson, but their relationship set the seal on a very unfair and negative reputation which reflects the prejudices of the time. Supper is included in the price and will be served after the lecture.
