Admission free, donations welcome

Explore the history of Botticelli at the National Gallery

Alexander Roestel, the Simon Sainsbury Curatorial Fellow, examines the Gallery’s acquisitions of paintings by Botticelli and how the evolving display choices reflect the critical rediscovery of the artist in the later 19th century.

Lunchtime talks

Focus in on one painting with our talks in the Gallery, or explore wider themes in the collection at our in-depth theatre talks.
