David Garrick's Wigless Celebrity

Dr Ruth Scobie looks at a portrait by Johan Zoffany of the eighteenth-century actor David Garrick, and asks what the picture's notorious wiglessness has to do with the actor's control of his extraordinary contemporary celebrity, in a TORCH Bite-Sized Talk at the Ashmolean Museum's Live Friday: Framed! event.

For more on this portrait see this post at the Oxford Celebrity Research Network blog.
