December 8 - 2019, March 1, 2020

The National Gallery is one of the world’s greatest collection of European art. Hidden in its collection of over 2,500 works there are black presences most times hidden. I’ll take you round the Gallery introducing you to many different works of art revealing their black presence to you: from subjects of economic capital to creators of cultural capital; musicians, kings, slaves, servants, saints and artists, sometimes just as people.

You’ll be introduced to the religious, cultural and social significance of the often hidden black presence in the works on display in National Gallery in London, by the end of each tour you’ll be able analyse the black presence in other pictures.

Image of the Black in the National Gallery is presented by Image of the Black in London Galleries in partnership with Black History Walks.
