Richard Borchard joins Dr Robert Travers for this fascinating talk that will explore a childhood and an upbringing in the context of a mother with a life-long passion for collecting. Ruth Borchard amassed one of the finest twentieth century collections of British self-portraiture in the country, capturing the ideas of a whole generation of artists. Dr Robert Travers runs London gallery Piano Nobile which manages the Ruth Borchard Collection on behalf of the family.
