Art for the Uninitiated 1: Where It All Began - repeat

  • Jun 9, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note - this is an alternative date for those who cannot make a Friday evening. Please feel free to come to one or the other.

In this first thematic tour of the National Gallery collection we will look at the beginnings of European Art - the Middle Ages.
We will find out what was the impulse behind the creation of first panel paintings in the 13th-14th century, look at the life of the artist, studio practices , learn how to identify the egg tempera technique and find out why it gave way to oil technique in the Netherlands. We will see Europe emerge from the dark ages and into a world of faith, colour and discovery.

After the tour we can have a cup of tea and socialise at one of the National Gallery's cafes.

      Hi Giles, thank you for coming and sorry you missed us. Maybe you were at the wrong place - we were still at the meeting point in SW foyer at the time you wrote this. Also I left instructions where to find us in my email earlier. Hope you can come next time? Lydia
