Eye to Eye: Self Portrait, Renaissance to Contemporary

A course complementing the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition SELF PORTRAIT: Renaissance to Contemporary and the Royal Academy’s Edvard Munch By Himself

This three-part course complements the National Portrait Gallery’s major exhibition SELF PORTRAIT: Renaissance to Contemporary and the Royal Academy’s show Edvard Munch By Himself. It explores three key areas: the Renaissance artist through the work of Van Eyck, Velazquez and Rembrandt; the psychological revelations of the great Norwegian artist Edvard Munch; and the modern self-portrait via the work of Frida Kahlo, Freud, Bacon and Warhol. The course is led by James Malpas, author of Realism; weeks 1 and 3 take place at the National Portrait Gallery and week 2 at the Royal Academy.
