What is it?
Looking to do something more interesting with your lunch hour? Why not try one of the Lunchtime Lectures at The Hunterian Museum in London? On Tuesday 7th June, from 1pm to 2pm, there will be a lecture on Reframing disability: Hidden histories, from the Royal College of Physicians.
This lecture will explore an extraordinary group of rare 17th to 19th century portraits depicting disabled men and women from all walks of life, many of whom earned a living by exhibiting themselves in public.
The Hunterian Museum holds collections of human and non-human anatomical and pathological specimens, models, instruments, painting and sculptures that reveal the art and science of surgery from the 17th century to the present day.
