Thursday 8 April


You don’t need to go to Italy to discover the Renaissance! See highlights from the extensive National collection from the comfort of your sofa. This virtual tour includes work from artists like

  • Uccello
  • Polliaolo
  • Botticelli
  • Da Vinci
  • Titian
  • Holbein

Join Nick’s tour of Renaissance Art at National Gallery via Zoom. If you have never used Zoom before, Nick will show you how to download the program and get started.

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 from the same household 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.
