Giovanni da Rimini: An Early 14th-Century Masterpiece Reunited

  • 14 June — 8 October 2017 *on now

Learn about a key moment in the history of art, when emphasis on observation and realism was born.

The exquisite Scenes from the Lives of the Virgin and other Saints by Giovanni da Rimini, the most talented artist in 14th-century Rimini, was purchased by the National Gallery in 2015.

Long thought of as part of a diptych together with a panel depicting ‘Scenes from the Life of Christ’ in the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica, Rome, the exhibition reunites the paintings, a reconstruction never before seen in the UK.

Presented with outstanding loans including works by artists working in Rimini in the early 14th century, exceptional ivory plaques, and important Italian Trecento paintings from the National Gallery, the exhibition reveals how these innovative works combine the discerning details of late-Byzantine icons with a new, more expressive style.

 Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas, 'The Red Ballet Skirts', about 1900

Drawn in Colour: Degas from the Burrell

  • 20 September 2017 — 7 May 2018 *on now

A rare opportunity to see stunning paintings, pastels, and drawings by leading French Impressionist Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas

The Burrell Collection holds one of the greatest collections of Degas’s works in the world. Rarely seen in public, this exhibition marks the first time the group of 20 pastels has been shown outside of Scotland, since they were acquired.

One of the greatest artistic innovators of his age, Degas found new ways of depicting modern Parisian life; pursuing a vision distinct from that of his fellow Impressionists. He also relentlessly experimented with materials, particularly pastel that he came to prefer over oil paint.

Coinciding with the centenary of Degas’s death, and including complementary works from the National Gallery Collection, the exhibition offers unique insight into the practices and preoccupations of a complex and intensely private artist. Exhibition organised by the National Gallery in collaboration with the Burrell Collection, Glasgow

John Everett Millais, 'Mariana', 1851

Reflections: Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites

  • 2 October 2017 — 2 April 2018

Discover how van Eyck’s 'Arnolfini Portrait' was one of the beacons by which the Pre-Raphaelites forged a radical new style of painting.

Acquired by the National Gallery in 1842, the Arnolfini Portrait informed the Pre-Raphaelites’ belief in empirical observation, their ideas about draughtsmanship, colour and technique, and the ways in which objects in a picture could carry symbolic meaning.

The exhibition will bring together for the first time the 'Arnolfini Portrait' with paintings from the Tate collection and loans from other museums, to explore the ways in which Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882), Sir John Everett Millais (1829–1896) and William Holman Hunt (1827–1910), among others, were influenced by the painting in their work.

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and workshop, Odalisque in Grisaille (detail), about 1824-34

Monochrome: Painting in Black and White

  • 30 October 2017 — 18 February 2018

Explore the tradition of painting in black and white from its beginnings in the Middle Ages through the Renaissance and into the 21st century.

Painting using predominantly black-and-white pigments has long held a fascination for artists, yet there has never been a major exhibition on the subject.

‘Monochrome’ presents a series of case studies that investigate where and when grisaille painting was used and to what effect: from early religious works to paintings that emulate sculpture or respond to other media such as printmaking, photography, and film.

Comprising works on glass, vellum, ceramic, silk, wood, and canvas by artists such as Leonardo, Rembrandt, Degas, Picasso, and Gerhard Richter (1932–), ‘Monochrome’ encourages visitors to trace the fascinating but little-studied history of black-and-white painting.

Tacita Dean, Prisoner Pair

Tacita Dean: STILL LIFE

  • 15 March — 28 May 2018

Curated by Tacita Dean and guided by her own understanding of the genre, 'STILL LIFE' presents a diverse selection of works in a variety of mediums.

Works by the artist herself – including a new film diptych made especially for the exhibition, 'Ideas for Sculpture in a Setting', and 'Prisoner Pair' (2008, 16mm) – feature alongside works by Dean's contemporaries, including Thomas Demand, Roni Horn, and Wolfgang Tillmans, and paintings from the National Gallery Collection, such as Zurbarán’s Cup of Water and a Rose.

'STILL LIFE' examines the genre's legacy within the history of art and demonstrates the continued importance of the still life genre and the National Gallery Collection as sources of inspiration in contemporary art practice.

This exhibition is part of an unprecedented collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery and Royal Academy of Arts, who are hosting related exhibitions, 'Tacita Dean: PORTRAIT' and 'Tacita Dean: LANDSCAPE,' respectively.

Francesco Guardi, Venice: The Punta della Dogana with S. Maria della Salute, about 1770

Slow art: A romantic destination? Guardi’s Venice

  • 2 October 2017 2-4pm

‘Stop thinking about art as objects and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences’, said Mark Rothko.

It takes time for a painting to yield its secrets. Looking slowly at art can lead to discoveries, such as sensory observations, personal and intellectual insights, and emotional responses.

Join Marc Woodhead to look intensely at a single painting. Be curious, listen to others, share thoughts, be moved, and above all, savour the experience at these eye-opening and inspiring sessions.

We consider the paintings’ original meaning and explore the validity of our personal encounter with art. Can we experience paintings on our own terms?

Sessions include a Gallery visit and a discussion in a conference room.

In this session we look at Guardi's paintings of Venice and consider whether these views depict a romantic destination or a damp and difficult place to work and live?

John Berger

Should every picture tell a story? John Berger on film

  • 28 October 2017 11am-4pm

Organised and presented in collaboration with the British Film Institute (BFI), a panel of art and film experts celebrate the life and work of art critic and writer John Berger at a unique day of screenings and discussion, featuring rare films from the BFI National Archive.

Examine Berger’s ascent into art criticism and his burgeoning career as a broadcaster crowned by his most famous work, ‘Ways of Seeing’ and enjoy some of his less familiar interpretations of art and visual culture including footage never rebroadcast on television since it first aired.

We will consider how Berger defined himself as a storyteller, reflect on what it means to watch him on film at the National Gallery, and contemplate his enduring contribution to the way we interpret fine art.

Constable's Cornfield

Silent witnesses: Trees in art

  • 17 November 2017 2-4pm
  • 24 November 2017 2-4pm

Symbolic, simplified or naturalistic, depictions of trees tell us much about the societies in which they flourished.

On this two-week course, Christiana Payne, who has written many books on landscape painting, explores the depiction of trees and their important role in European art, from the early Renaissance to the late 19th century.

The course involves close-looking at paintings in the National Gallery Collection such as Hobbema’s Avenue at Middleharnis, Constable’s Cornfield and van Gogh’s Wheatfield, with Cypresses.

Programme

Week one: 17 November 2017

Real, ideal, and symbolic trees, 1300–1750
From cartoon-like renditions in the 14th century to detailed naturalism in the 15th century, and from the idealised landscapes of Claude to the everyday scenes of Rubens and Hobbema, this session introduces a wide variety of depictions of trees.

2–2.55pm: From symbolic to naturalistic: Trees in 14th and 15th-century paintings

2.55–3.05pm: Comfort break

3.05–4pm: Claude, Rubens, and Hobbema: The real and the ideal

Week two: 23 November 2017

The love of trees, 1750–1900
18th and 19th-century art and literature provides evidence of a widespread love of trees and nature. In this session we explore how trees inspired painters, poets and landscape gardeners, and we take a particular look at trees in the art of the Pre-Raphaelites.

2–2.55pm From Gainsborough and Constable to the Post-Impressionists

2.55–3.05pm: Comfort break

3.05–4pm: Pre-Raphaelite trees and the inspiration of 15th-century painting

Manet, Music in the Tuileries Gardens

Life drawing salon: Manet and contrast

  • 24 November 2017 6:30am-8:30pm

Manet's paintings were both celebrated and criticised for the use of extreme contrast. He often painted dark silhouettes against a pale background or the profile of a black suit against a white dress.

In making monochrome drawings of the nude model, we will experiment with collage and a range of drawing tools to create dynamic black-and-white compositions.
