The National Gallery is one of the world’s finest collections of European painting, spanning the 13th to 20th centuries. This course is an opportunity to make an intensive study of particular artists, paintings, periods, and themes across the collection. We will be examining specific aspects such as the compositional structure, the use of colour and tone to create form and spatial effects as well as the rich narrative and symbolic elements. This is not a course in copying but rather transcription; translating what you observe into your own drawing. The two tutors will each bring their individual approach to analysing and stimulating your responses. Students will be encouraged to develop their own interpretations and extend these to their own practises. All levels of experience are welcome, on this rigorous and absorbing course.
