Talk: Agostino Brunias: Printed Works on Paper: Yale Center for British Art

June 7 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Agostino Brunias was born in 1728 in Rome.  While working as an artist, he came to the attention of the Scottish architect Robert Adam, who was touring Italy. After working as a draftsman and painter in Adam’s firm from 1758 to 1764, Brunias accepted a position as an artist accompanying Sir William Young, the recently appointed President of the Commission for the Sale of Ceded Lands in Dominica, Saint Vincent, Grenada, and Tobago. Brunias created paintings and prints depicting the people, clothing, customs, and complex multicultural society of both the enslaved and freed people of the West Indies.
