This careers day, organised with the Association of Art Historians, provides a glimpse behind the scenes at the National Gallery and an opportunity to learn about the career paths of staff members who work here.

By exploring one painting from the collection from a variety of perspectives ,we discover more about the work of the different Gallery departments. Learn how Van Eyck’s Arnolfini Portrait involves curators, educators, framers, conservators, development staff and employees of the National Gallery Company.

This event is intended for students and career-changers interested in working in a gallery. All welcome.
