Animals in Art

  • March 24, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • The National Gallery


You'd think that paintings tell stories about people, but animals, constant companions to humans, play a surprisingly important and varied role in paintings of all ages.


We will look at the smallest of creatures like flies to the biggest such as rhinoceros, via snails, chickens, swans, eagles, cats, dogs, goats, cows, cheetahs and the largest horse you have ever seen on a canvas.


You will find that these creatures often add an amusing, symbolic, moral and even erotic dimension to paintings.


Followed by tea and cake in the National Gallery Dining Rooms where you will enjoy a 25% discount.
