Seminars and Conferences


The National Gallery is a pre-eminent centre for research into European paintings from the 13th to the early 20th centuries. It seeks to answer questions regarding how, why, when and for whom paintings were made and who the subsequent owners were. Research is also conducted into how the pictures were used over time and what their imagery means, as well as into general questions of art historical interest.

Seminars and conferences ensure that new research of this kind, conducted by staff and external experts, is disseminated to diverse audiences, both specialists and the general public.

Details of future seminars and conferences will be placed here or will be available via the events calendar
