NEW LOOK AT OLD ART AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY
£40 per person
At the National Gallery, we will travel through the history of European art, focusing on the paintings of the Dutch Golden Age (Seventeenth-century) and Impressionists in particular. We will look at the paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Rachel Ruysch and their Flemish counterparts, Rubens and Van Dyck, followed by an excellent selection of work by Cezanne, Monet, Renoir and Picasso. All of these pioneers of modern art sought inspiration in the Old Masters from the North.
Hopefully, after these 90 minutes spent together, you will leave with a deeper understanding of what the art of Old Masters was all about, and why it was so important for the development of the modern art that followed.
Duration 90 minutes.
