Cornelius Johnson (1593–1661): the Portrait Painter as Pragmatist

Lecture by Karen Hearn, FSA

Fellow Karen Hearn is curating a small display on the 17th-century Anglo-Netherlandish portrait-painter Cornelius Johnson for the National Portrait Gallery this spring (15 April through September). Johnson was a very talented artist who has unaccountably been largely neglected by scholars, in spite of his significant sitters (eg, Charles I), career and life.
