Join Nick Pearson for a tour of the Artemisia Gentileschi 2020 Exhibition at the National Gallery. This is the first major exhibition of her work in the UK and you have the opportunity to enjoy it from the comfort of your living room.

Tuesday 30 March

2pm

Male artists dominated the art scene in 17th Century Europe and their clients were mostly male. There were few women artists. Despite the challenges Artemisia Gentileschi was a successful artist. She is one of the most well known female artists in the world.

In this virtual tour you will see both versions of her painting Judith Slaying Holofernes and much more.

Join the virtual tour of the Artemisia Gentileschi 2020 Exhibition via Zoom. If you have not used Zoom before, Nick can show you how to download and use the program.

Nick runs the tour from his studio and uses the wall as his projector screen. You’ll be able to see the images but if you want to see them clearly, please use the handout with high resolution images. Nick sends you the handout when you have booked your place. After the tour Nick sends you his lecture notes.

The price for the two-hour virtual tour and notes is £20 per person. If two of you join the tour and share a computer screen, the price is £30 for you both. You can pay Nick via bank transfer or cheque. He will send you the details.
