In a fifth series of Art Detectives, Dr Bendor Grosvenor and Emma Dabiri return to scour Britain’s regional museums and nationally owned houses in a hunt for more lost and hidden public treasures, uncovering the forgotten but fascinating stories behind our public collections. Visiting Brighton and Hove Museums and Art Galleries, National Trust at Tatton Park, and Glasgow Museums Resource Centre, they will explore the stories behind the collections, the origins of the buildings themselves, the rich history of the benefactors and the tales behind the artists and the sitters. They’ll also explore the wider history of the artworks and the local area to celebrate how they sit in the art history landscape. Together, these fascinating local detective stories are brought to life for a wider national audience.
