Full description
Explore works of art by the masters of light at the National Gallery, from Italian Quattrocento master Masaccio to 17th-century Dutch innovator Rembrandt and the revolutionary 19th-century Impressionists.

With the aid of your personal tour guide, you'll have the opportunity to discuss some key themes that have played major roles in the history of art. You'll cover topics such as religion, scientific theory, and ways of seeing, whilst taking an in-depth look at some of the most famous paintings in the history of western art.

You'll leave the gallery (quite literally) looking at light in a whole new light. All of this will be enjoyed whilst gaining insight into the personal lives of the artists and what inspired them most.
