Fruits of the Spirit: Kidness image
Synopsis:

Join Dr Susanna Avery-Quash, Senior Research Curator (History of Collecting), for an in-focus consideration on the theme of kindness, from the virtual exhibition ‘Fruits of the Spirit: Art from the Heart’.
 
Taking Eugène Delacroix’s ‘Ovid Among the Scythians’ and its exhibition partner Louis Finson’s (circle of) ‘Christ Healing the Ear of Malchus’ from the Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle as its starting point, this session will explore how kindness is expressed in a selection of works from the National Gallery Collection.
