£60 per person 2 hours 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. Rembrandt, Vermeer, Judith Leyster and Rachel Ruysch and their Flemish counterparts, Rubens and Van Dyck, are just a few artists we will be looking at. We will then spend some time looking at an excellent selection of work by Cezanne, Monet, Renoir, Picasso and others we can describe as the first truly modern artists, all of whom sought inspiration in the Northern art of the past. From Impressionism to Abstraction, the art of the Dutch Golden Age was highly influential. Hopefully, after these 2 hours 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. All levels are welcome, no previous knowledge of art is required.
