Time in Art

  • Apr 6, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • The National Gallery

Paintings, being static show a single moment of time - or so we might think.

In fact, artists have always tried to introduce the concept of time passing into their paintings .

We will look at the varied ways artists achieved this seemingly impossible goal, from following narratives, through capturing weather effects, to the use of symbolism.


We will find, that far from being absent from paintings, Time is a very potent ingredient in works from the Middle ages right up to the 19th century.


We will look at works by Sassetta, Titian, Claude, Bronzino, Constable, Monet and many others.


As always an enjoyable tea and cake afterwards in the National Gallery dining rooms ( where my 25% staff discount will apply)

    Lydia, I'm not feeling well and it is likely that I will not be able to attend tomorrow.
