LECTURE: TREASURES OF THE TURF
A History of English Horseracing through the Fine and Decorative Arts
Christopher Garibaldi (National Horseracing Museum Director) looks at the development of the sport of horseracing from the late seventeenth century to today. Using the wealth of paintings, archive material and decorative arts associated with and depicting the ‘Sport of Kings’, this lecture will look at the earliest origins of the sport, and the development of Newmarket and the Jockey Club as racing’s ‘Headquarters’. Focusing on the long eighteenth century, Treasures of the Turf will also explore the vastly influential Northern racing circuit and York’s rich racing heritage.
