National Gallery

Ive made drawings from the paintings at the National Gallery before, but on this visit I wanted to add some context by including the gallery space, the gallery assistants and visitors to the gallery. This approach also gave me the opportunity to look at the relationships between paintings hung side by side.

Dido receiving Aenas and Cupid, Francesco Sulimena

The Heavenly and Earthly Trinities, Murillo

Perseus turning Phineas and his followers to stone, Luca Giordano

An experiment on a bird in the air pump, Joseph Wright of Derby

Adoration of the Shepherds, Guido Reni

Salome receives the head of John The Baptist, Caravaggio

The Rokeby Venus, Valasquez
