Benjamin West: General Wolfe and the Art of Empire
Benjamin West's iconic painting The Death of General Wolfe (1776) depicts the death of the British commander at the 1759 Battle of Quebec during what in this country is known as the French and Indian War. West’s painting of a contemporary event in the conventions of an academic history painting became one of the most celebrated in Britain. Docents will illuminate this pivotal moment in art history.
