Kellie Castle was a huge influence on the painter John Henry Lorimer. For this online talk, Dr Antonia Laurence-Allen, National Trust for Scotland’s Regional Curator for Edinburgh and East, will take you on a journey linking the paintings with the property to reveal what is real and imagined in John Henry’s genre scenes. Genre is the term for representations of everyday or domestic life.
Dr Antonia Laurence Allen is Regional Curator for Edinburgh and East for the National Trust of Scotland, with thirty years’ experience in museums and heritage. She has worked at Kellie Castle for nearly eight years.
