Article Featured Image

Julian Treuherz's last speaking engagement before his retirement was delivering a picture of the month talk at the Lady Lever Art Gallery on Hubert von Herkomer's 'The Last Muster'. The talk is now available to download online (mp3/transcript/links). The painting portrays a group of Chelsea Pensioners in chapel. One of the men has  died during the service. The talk covers Herkomer's time working on 'The Graphic', Van Gogh's admiration for his work and the subject of death in Victorian painting.
