We are pleased to let ARTES members know that a small visit to Artemisia Gentileschi will take place on Thursday November 5th at 0915.
Gentileschi spent some years working in Naples (from 1630- until her death, thought to have occurred in 1652, when it was part of the Spanish Empire.) Her patrons included Phillip IV and his ambassadors and Viceroys, eg The Duke of Alcala. We thought it made sense to visit the exhibition and follow on developing our understanding of the Spanish in Naples.
Due to the pandemic places are limited, to 10 only, masks must be worn and social distancing of 2 metres observed. We cannot form groups as we go through the exhibition.
If you want to include “Titian” please make an online booking for later that morning as combining the two exhibitions is not now possible due to the pandemic.
Meet Susan Wilson at the Sainsbury Wing Entrance at 0900 to enter at 0915.
Latecomers cannot be admitted. NB: If you reserve a place and cannot attend please let me know immediately as we can run a waiting list for this visit, but I would need to swap names over.
You are cordially invited to self-guided tours of Artemisia and Titian. ARTES members will be able to access both exhibitions free of charge during the event (7 spaces are available).
Entry via the Sainsbury Wing to the Artemisia exhibition (accessible via the Sainsbury Wing Entrance, to the far left of the main portico on Trafalgar Square, and descend to level -2). Names will be checked off a security list.
10:00 – 10:30 am
Coffee break at the National Gallery café.
10:30 – 11:30 am
Meet at the Titian exhibition entrance (via room 5) where exhibition curator Matthias Wivel will provide a brief introduction before the members’ self-guided tour.
Attendees may check their belongings into one of the Gallery’s cloakrooms. Large bags and suitcases may not be brought into the Gallery. Please note that this event is by invitation only. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
