The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge is hosting an online conference next week on the writer, scholar and amateur doctor William Hayley (1745-1820).

One talk which might interest readers of this blog is the Romney Scholar Alex Kidson's on 12th November 2020 at 15.00pm. Kidson will be discussing Hayley's relationship with the Georgian artist George Romney. This was a friendship which resulted in many fine portraits (as above) and a few subject pictures.

The conference is free to attend but donations are welcomed.
