Service Description

£70 per person 2 hours As the art world prepares to commemorate 150 Years of Impressionism our National Gallery Experience offers you an opportunity to have a closer look at paintings by the ground-breaking artists who were included into the very first Impressionist exhibition, artists such as Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro and Paul Cézanne. Considered deeply controversial at the time, their work marked a dramatic shift away from traditional styles. But of course they didn’t just invent new methods of depicting light, form and subject matter without looking anew at the art of the past. We will explore how the work by J.M.W. Turner, Rembrandt, Caravaggio and other Old Masters influenced the artists of the future, talk about the importance of the 17th-century Dutch art and stop to admire such jewels of the gallery’s collection as Holbein, Michelangelo, Canaletto and Moroni. And what about women artists, you may ask? There are only 4 pieces currently on display and we will talk about and why. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the history of the gallery, its accession policies, the issue of provenance and many other curious facts. All ages are welcome, no specific knowledge of art is required, our Art Walks are easily tailored.
