Join us for a Scholarly Scuffle to debate the relative greatness of two 18th-century British painters: Thomas Gainsborough and Sir Joshua Reynolds. Supporting Gainsborough is Melinda McCurdy, The Huntington’s associate curator for British art. Catherine Roach, associate professor of art history at Virginia Commonwealth University, rallies for Team Reynolds.

Drinks and light bites will be served before and after the program.
