From the Abbey to the Guildhall – Images of Tavistock from the 18th to the 19th century: Artistic Licence or Historical Evidence?

Online via Zoom

Tickets: Free

Dr Geri Parlby – Art Historian and Chair of Tavistock Heritage Trust


Tavistock Abbey’s ruins have been an inspiration to artists from the early decades of the 18th century to the 21stcentury. Who were the artists who sketched, painted and engraved the earliest of these images? Can they really tell us what the town looked like before its 19th century facelift?
