About

Curators decide what you see on the walls of the National Gallery. You might not always agree with their choices or the history of art they tell. 

In these sessions, National Gallery educators voice opposing views about one painting, and give you an opportunity to make up your own mind. 

Expect strident views as well as thoughtful reflection!

Each session will take place online, via Zoom, and will last 45 minutes.

Fake or fortune?

Join the National Gallery's Carlo Corsato and Marc Woodhead to hear opposing views.  

Has the National Gallery purchased a fine example of Early Venetian landscape painting or the fabrication of unscrupulous restorers and art critics?
