Monet: The Water Garden at Giverny

  • 16 September 2014 — 16 September 2015 *on now

In 1918, the day after the Armistice was signed, Monet promised a group of paintings to the French nation as a 'monument to peace'. Known as the 'Water-Lilies', they continue to captivate visitors almost a century later.

Claude Monet lived at Giverny, Normandy, for half of his long life; during his final decades, he almost exclusively painted the garden filled with water-lilies he had created there. A keen horticulturist, he intended the garden 'for the pleasure of the eyes and also for the purpose of having subjects to paint'.

This display highlights the National Gallery's exceptional holdings of Monet's Giverny pictures, shown together for the first time in 17 years.

Peder Balke

  • 12 November 2014 — 12 April 2015 *on now

Peder Balke is among the most pioneering painters of 19th-century Scandinavia but despite the beauty and expressiveness of his seascapes, few today will recognise his name.

Balke was one of the first artists to venture to the vast, untrodden plains of the North Cape where he was overwhelmed by “opulent beauties of nature and locations delivered to the eye and the mind.” A lack of commercial success forced him to abandon his career as a painter, yet, so alluring was this wilderness on him that Balke continued to paint small scenes for pleasure. Such works, including the Gallery’s ‘Tempest’, are now widely regarded as highly original improvisations of unequalled virtuosity and innovation.

Inventing Impressionism

  • 4 March — 31 May 2015

So universally popular are the Impressionists today, it’s hard to imagine a time when they weren’t. But in the early 1870s they struggled to be accepted. Shunned by the art establishment, they were even lambasted as ‘lunatics’ by one critic.

One man, however, recognised their worth from the beginning. Paul Durand-Ruel, an entrepreneurial art dealer from Paris, discovered this group of young artists – including Monet, Degas, Manet, Renoir, Pissarro and Sisley – and gambled.

In a unique collaboration with the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, ‘Inventing Impressionism’ features 85 masterpieces from the movement, all but one having passed through Durand-Ruel’s hands, including three of Renoir’s famous ‘Dances’ and five from Monet’s ‘Poplars’ series, alongside rare photographs from Durand-Ruel’s life.

Soundscapes: Listening to Paintings

  • 8 July — 6 September 2015

After the highly successful and experimental 'Metamorphosis: Titian 2012', where contemporary artists – including choreographers, composers, dancers, poets and visual artists – responded to paintings by Renaissance master Titian, the National Gallery is inviting six sound artists and musicians to each select a painting from the National Gallery’s collection and to create new work in response to it.

Each artist will be given a room in the Sainsbury Wing exhibition galleries in which their chosen painting and their sound/musical response will be installed.

The new sound pieces will be site specific and can only be heard in the context of the 'Soundscapes' exhibition with the painting that inspired it. Relying on minimal text, the idea is to give visitors the opportunity to experience and think about these works of art in a very different way, through what they hear as much as what they see.

This is an exhibition that celebrates the National Gallery’s collection, highlighting its ongoing inspiration for contemporary artists, this time from the musical world.

Goya: The Portraits

  • 7 October 2015 — 10 January 2016

Francisco de Goya (1746 -1828) is one of Spain’s most celebrated artists. He was considered a supremely gifted portrait painter and an excellent social commentator who took the genre of portraiture to new heights through his ability to reveal the psychology of his sitter.

This landmark exhibition - the first ever focusing solely on his portraits - re-appraises Goya’s genius as a portraitist and provide a penetrating insight into both public and private aspects of his life. It explores Goya’s ambitions and development as a painter, and his innovative and unconventional approach to portraiture which often broke traditional boundaries.

By bringing together more than 50 of his most outstanding portraits from around the world, including drawings and miniatures, and organising them in a chronological and thematic sequence, the show enables viewers to engage for the first time with the full range of Goya’s technical, stylistic and psychological development as a portraitist.

Animating the 18th Century Country House

  • 5 March 2015 10am-5pm

When we visit a Georgian country house and wander through its interiors, the impression we get is of a moment frozen in time. In fact the country house was anything but a static, unchanging entity.

This one-day scholarly conference encourages fresh thinking about 18th-century country houses as environments that were always evolving, animated by interactions between objects and people.

The conference will look at the ways in which objects, when placed on display within a particular space, entered into different kinds of dialogue with the contents, decoration and associations of that space.

Looking at paintings can make us feel better
neuroscientists have discovered that looking at a beautiful artwork can increase the blood flow to the part of the brain associated with pleasure by as much as 10 per cent – the equivalent of gazing at a loved one.

In this small group discussion we ask whether considerations such as size, colour and subject matter make a difference to our emotional response.

This is a chance to enjoy the luxury of looking at a small number of paintings, in a room to ourselves. The conversation will continue over a cup of tea. No prior knowledge of art history is necessary.

Writing to the Impressionists

  • 14 May 2015 2-4pm

“Without him, we wouldn’t have survived” was Monet’s verdict on the role played by art dealer, Paul Durand-Ruel.

In the early days of their radical movement, the Impressionist painters paid a heavy price for their rejection of tradition. Never far from the brink of poverty and ridiculed by critics and the public, Monet, in particular, was frequently in despair.

Drawing on both their work and the correspondence between the art dealer Durand-Ruel and the artists, this course will explore the story of the beginnings of modern art.
