Newest Review: ... The underground floors are quite small and has temporary exhibits and a theater. Of the above-ground floors there is only one fully used for the paintings.

I went to this show: it was really memorable. So I bought a catalogue . Now, more than a dozen years have passed and I am back on the other side of the planet, in New Zealand and am finding that catalogue a wonderful source for tutoring a class of adult learners. They have been quite distressed because I have cut up the original book so as to be able use examples more freely, but the whole idea of being able to look at work from the past as well as contemporary products has been invaluable for opening up discussions and exploring ideas. There has been opportunity for research into the historical backgrounds and with the modern work we have moved on to comparing our own NZ approaches with those from this exhibition, tracing some threads and influences relevant to New Zealand.

During my vacation in London, I visited several museums. One was the National Gallery, a museum with only paintings displayed. I came here right on my first day in London. Location The National Gallery is on Trafalgar Square in London. The museum is located a short distance from Charing Cross Underground station, in fact you just have to cross the square. In addition, several buses are stopping on or near Trafalgar Square. In the vicinity of the museum are several parking garages. But it is advisable to use public transport, because that is much simpler and cheaper. The Building The National Gallery is as mentioned on the ... Read the complete review

You couldn't get a better location overlooking trafalgar sqaure and like many galleries in London this one is free (except for exhibitions). I absolutely love it, it's massive for one thing so you have a huge selection-personally Yesterday we went to see the 'Brilliant Women' art exhibition at the NPG. It is a small two-room collection of paintings and first edition books of (mostly) women who featured in the group of people at the end of the 18th Century known as 'The Bluestockings' - female (and some male) artists, poets, writers and intellectuals who would meet in each other's houses - most notably at Elizabeth Montagu's mansions in London. The NPG are ... Read the complete review

This summer I decided that a visit to The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square was long overdue. A few minutes walk from Charing Cross tube, the able bodied can climb the front steps of the Portico Enterance of the National Gallery and get good views of Trafalgar Square and Big Ben. Alternatively you can enter by the low level Getty Entrance nearby or the Sainsbury Wing entrance more to the left . I personally prefer to wander around a gallery of my own free will but you can get a variety of audio tours (highlights or themed tours, or choose whichever commentary you wish to listen to from over 1000 paintings) or free guided tours. A voluntary donation is ... Read the complete review
