Spring Lecture: Benjamin West and “The Venetian Secret”
Presented by Angus Trumble, Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia. In 1796 a shadowy figure, Thomas Provis, and his artist daughter, Ann Jemima Provis, persuaded the American-born artist Benjamin West that they possessed a copy of an old manuscript purporting to contain descriptions of materials and techniques used by the Venetian painters of the High Renaissance. West used these materials and techniques in secret to execute a large history painting entitled Cicero Discovering the Tomb of Archimedes (1796–97). In fact, the manuscript was fake but West believed it, and through him the Provises managed to dupe a number of other key artist members of the Royal Academy of Arts in London. When the fraud was finally exposed, the embarrassment was far worse for West than it was for the other victims because it was largely through his influential position as president of the Academy that the perpetrators managed to gain access to so many of his variously hapless, dim-witted, or simply greedy colleagues. What do the two surviving versions of Cicero Discovering the Tomb of Archimedes tell us about the “Venetian Secret”, and why did West fall for it?

Spring Lecture: Fashion Icons
Presented by Robert Reason, Coordinating Curator, Fashion Icons: Masterpieces from the collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris and Curator of European and Australian Decorative Arts. In this warm up lecture, Robert Reason speaks about the excitement and vitality of Parisian style within the context of contemporary fashion design since 1947 when the couturier Christian Dior re-launched haute couture with his New Look. From that time fashion design blossomed with the lavish splendour of the 1950s, the futurist dynamism of the 1960s, the inspired emancipation of the 1970s, the unbridled excess of the 1980s, and the pure minimalism of the 1990s, all inspiring today’s composite portrait of the 21st century. This exhibition presents over 100 emblematic haute couture garments created by the world's leading fashion designers and curated by the museum’s 20th and 21st Centuries Fashion and Textile Collection Chief Curator, Pamela Golbin.
