Bridgeman's Night of Aperitivo and Art

On 23rd November we held our first event exclusively for freelance picture researchers at the Estorick Collection, which Bridgeman represents for image licensing.


We know how hard freelance picture researchers work and what an important role they play in our industry. In appreciation, we thought they deserved a party and threw them one at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, complete with Italian-themed drinks, nibbles, and a guided tour of the galleries.


Prosecco, Parma Ham and Paintings
Italian white wine and Prosecco flowed freely as we were treated to a history of the Estorick by staff member and art historian, Luke Alder. Later, a finger buffet was served, loaded with cured meats, cheeses and focaccias. 
The evening was a fantastic opportunity to see old colleagues and strike up new friendships.

"Thank you for such a lovely evening last night.  Also a big thank you for the beautiful scarf, just what's needed in this wintry weather."  - Heather Vickers

"Thanks very much for a fab evening at the Estorick... John and Jenny, it was great to see you both again, and Victoria it was lovely to meet you at last after so many email conversations. I really enjoyed catching up with my fellow freelancers - some of whom I've known for many years - and it was interesting to learn more about the history of the Estorick Collection."
- Caroline Hotblack
