The annual UEA Legacy Reception took place in early December, at Philip Mould’s gallery in Dover Street, London. The Reception was an opportunity to thank alumni and friends of the University who have agreed to leave, or are considering leaving, a legacy to the University in their Will.
The event was hosted by the University’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Neil Ward, and UEA alumnus, Philip Mould OBE (AHM 78). Professor Ward gave a welcome to the event, which was followed by talk delivered by Philip Mould, about the major loan exhibition on display in the gallery entitled Warts and All: The Portrait Miniatures of Samuel Cooper, Britain’s first internationally celebrated artist. The exhibition included portrait miniatures from the Royal Collection and national museums, as well as leading private collections. Our sincere thanks to Philip for hosting the reception at his gallery and offering the opportunity for guests to view the special exhibition, together with the artwork in his collection - his specialisms being British art and Old Masters – which were received with much interest and enthusiasm.
