Exhibition of Artemisia’s work at the National Gallery

Event Details


When: 18 Feb -
Thursday 10:30 am
Price: £20 per person (£30 for two people)

Join Nick Pearson for a tour of the exhibition of Artemisia’s work 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.

Thursday 18 February


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 Nick’s online tour of the exhibition of Artemisia’s work via Zoom. Nick will show you how to download and use Zoom, if you need assistance.

When you have booked your place, Nick sends you a handout with high resolution images. You can refer to this handout during the lecture and see the images clearly. He projects the images on his studio wall and uses them to point things out as he speaks. 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.
