About the Experience
  • Starting with some of the main galleries in London - such as the National Portrait Gallery, Courtauld Institute or the British Museum - Rosalind will introduce you to some of the capital’s most curious and compelling collections.
  • Follow her into private houses which have been turned into galleries and tucked-away museums such as The Cartoon Museum, Sir John Soane’s Museum and The Hunterian for a surprising glimpse of the past and the chance to view artistic treasures.
  • Learn about the evolution of portraiture, pointing out portraits to demonstrate how people through the ages have chosen to be represented and how artists have responded to them.
  • She will provide a brief history of the artists and their subjects and, using her understanding of portraiture, bring the process to life through explaining painting techniques, styles and composition.
