Event description: 

The Yale University Art Gallery presents an In-Person Program, Special-Exhibition Tours.

“In a New Light: Paintings from the Yale Center for British Art.” 

Guides will be Yale Center for British Art docents.

A painting of several ships in a harbor, with a city faintly visible in the background. A particularly detailed ship occupies the middle ground. Its deck is crowded with people. One of those on board appears to either hand off or receive something from two people who stand in an adjacent paddle boat, while another paddle boat full of people floats nearer to the foreground. The sky is yellow and pale blue, with sparse clouds.

More than 60 major works of painting from the collection of the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) are on view at the Yale University Art Gallery while the YCBA is closed for building conservation. Join YCBA docents to learn more about the exhibition, which spans four centuries of British landscape and portraiture traditions, as well as about the YCBA’s architecture, collection, and history.
