“Romanticism and modern art are one and the same thing” wrote the French poet Charles Baudelaire in 1846.

This study day, held in collaboration with the Open University, explores the diverse subjects and varied styles of Romantic painting with its ‘intimacy, spirituality, colour’ and ‘yearning for the infinite.’ Curators, art historians and artists discuss Delacroix, Romanticism, and the rise of modern art.

The National Gallery exhibition ‘Making Colour‘ takes visitors on a journey through colour from the ancient world to the Impressionists. On this study day, the journey continues up to the present day. You will hear from art historians and artists who will explore different aspects of the exhibition and discuss the symbolism of colour in different contexts. The cultural fear of corruption from colour will also be examined – along with the work of artists and writers who have challenged that fear (taken from the National Gallery website)

This study day discussed the work of Michael Landy and his exhibition Michael Landy: Saints Alive, which ran between 23 May and 24 November 2013. A series of large-scale kinetic sculptures brought a contemporary twist to the lives of the saints. Saints are more often associated with traditional sacred art than with contemporary work, but Michael Landy, Rootstein Hopkins Associate Artist in residence at the National Gallery, was inspired to revisit the subject for his exhibition.
