ArtyFacts @ Blackheath @ Night

Some people are unable to make Friday mornings, but might be interested in evening sessions.

The following Friday evening session (7.30pm to 9pm) will be taking place:

18 January – Mantegna and Bellini (confirmed)

The National Gallery’s Mantegna and Bellini exhibition is described as a once in a lifetime opportunity to see in London rare loans of paintings and drawings from around the world by two of the most influential artists of the Renaissance. We will look at works in the exhibition and the intriguing story of art, family, rivalry and personality of these two artists and brothers-in-law.

[‘Mantegna and Bellini’ at The National Gallery, ends 27 January]
