The secret language of art

This is a U3A study day hosted by the National Gallery in London on 24th November 2016.

It will focus on symbols and allegories in some of the most beautiful and intriguing paintings in the National Gallery. This study day will provide tools for reading the hidden meanings of well-known paintings. There is never a single definitive interpretation of a work of art, but you will learn some of the main types of visual allegory and symbolism available to artists working in the tradition of Western European painting.

Tickets cost £18.
