Dr. Kokkonen is the Assistant curator of paintings & sculpture at the Yale Centre for British Art. He will speak on Milkmaids in St James’s Park, Westminster Abbey Beyond, an unusual pastoral landscape by Benjamin West on loan from the Yale Center for British Art, is on display alongside five major history paintings commissioned by George III for his Warm Room at Buckingham House, on long-term loan from the Royal Collection Trust. Placed together, this group of six paintings demonstrates West’s versatility as an artist, from elevated historical narratives to scenes of contemporary urban life.
