Guided Art Visit in Spanish at the National Gallery: "The Spanish Golden Age" - Saturday 27th January 2024 at 11am
Painting in Spain blossomed during the 17th century, coinciding with the political rise of the Spanish Empire.
Join us on Saturday 27th January 2024 at 11am the National Gallery to discover the powerful and uniquely Spanish painting styles of Velázquez, Zurbarán and Murillo, and a fascinating period of Spanish history, flourishing in arts and literature.
This is a welcoming, fun, and friendly discussion-based tour in which you will put your Spanish into gear. You will not only learn about art, but you will also be encouraged to be critical and express your own opinions. Absolutely no knowledge of art is required, just an inquisitive mind and an interest to learn and exchange views.
The session will be led by art historian, gallery educator, and Spanish language teacher at Spanish House London, in a combination between an art history- and a Spanish language class.
This session is ideal for students with at least an A2 level of Spanish (equivalent to Spanish House London Continuacion courses and above).
You will be provided with a vocabulary list in advance, so that you can familiarise yourself with the words we will use in the tour. Spaces are limited, please book in advance.
We will meet on Saturday 27th January 2024 at 11am by the information desk at the National Gallery's Annenberg Court (Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN). Look for the Spanish House London logo. Should you have any troubles finding us, please contact us on 07775 583 740. The tour will last approximately 2 hours.
