On Wednesday, March 15, we will visit the newly reopened Yale Center for British Art in New Haven and have a tour at 10:45 am of their special exhibit, Enlightened Princesses. This show explores the story of three remarkable German princesses, Caroline, Augusta and Charlotte, who married into the British royal family in the 18th century and left lasting legacies of culture and enlightenment. We will see works commissioned by them, including paintings by Holbein, Kent, Ramsay, Reynolds, Stubbs, Gainsborough and others. We will have time to see the rest of the museum afterwards and then proceed to lunch at the Union League Cafe. There is no fee for the Museum or tour.
