Join us for a free lunchtime lecture at the Ferens, with guest lecturer Dr Caroline Campbell. Caroline is The Jacob Rothschild Head of the Curatorial Department and Curator of Italian Paintings before 1500 at the National Gallery, London.


Caroline has been on the journey with Pietro Lorenzetti’s gold-ground panel painting from the outset. When ‘Christ between Saints Paul and Peter’ appeared at auction in 2012, Caroline was made official champion of the work – in the race to save the painting for the nation.


Earlier in her career, Caroline held curatorial positions at The Courtauld Gallery, London (where she was Curator of Paintings from 2005-12); the National Gallery and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Caroline has curated and co-curated many exhibitions, including Bellini and the East (2005-06), Love and Marriage in Renaissance Florence (2009); Building the Picture: Architecture in Italian Renaissance Painting (2014) and Duccio/Caro: In Dialogue (2015). She is currently developing an exhibition project about two of the greatest Renaissance artists, the brothers-in-law Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini.
