Oil! Oil! Oil! Van Eyck to Holbein and the Northern Renaissance


Friday 7 April | 6.45pm - 8.00pm | National Gallery


The artists of the Northern Renaissance were a very different bunch from those working in Italy. Without the same preoccupation for perspective, anatomy and design, the north looked instead to symbolism, allegory and intellect. With an exquisite understanding of oil paint and an intense eye for detail, the Northern artists created some of the most intriguing and aesthetically beautiful works of the 15th and 16th centuries. The National Gallery boasts some of the best of these and on this tour we'll look at works by Van Eyck, Dürer, Cranach, Massys and Holbein.

A huge thanks from us for helping make last night’s event so special. We are getting such positive feedback from all of the clients – some of the most glowing I’ve ever received.

My son Charlie and I were taken round the National Gallery by Rose Balston, and in three brief hours, we were inspired to levels of wonder. Rose has the gift of allowing you to discover things in the paintings that you would never have noticed before…I’d strongly recommend you join an Art History UK tour.
