Do you agree with the decisions we make about which paintings are on display and the history of art we tell in the Gallery?
In this event, see two of our educators go head to head and voice opposing views on a single painting in the collection.
Expect both strident views and thoughtful reflection that challenges preconceptions.
Each session will take place online, via Zoom, and will last 45 minutes.
Revolutionary or chocolate-box scene?
Join the National Gallery's Caroline Smith and Katy Tarbard to hear opposing views. Can they change your mind about this iconic British landscape painting?
Deservedly popular or downright kitsch?
Join the National Gallery's Christina Bradstreet and Nick Pace to hear opposing views.
Did Delaroche’s 'Execution of Lady Jane Grey' deserve to be hidden away for many years, or does it merit its more recent revival in fortunes? Is it a ‘bad’ painting and what is a bad painting anyway?
