Author Laura Cumming

Laura Cumming, art critic and writer, fell in love with the paintings of the great Spanish painter Velazquez and discovered that her passion had been matched in the nineteenth century by a print seller in Reading, John Snare. Snare spent his life struggling to prove that he owned a rare Velazquez portrait of Charles I and Laura’s book, The Vanishing Man, reveals both Snare’s tumultuous life with the portrait and her passionate response to its painter. The event will include refreshments.
