Deck the Walls: Painting the Christmas Story


Friday 7 December | 18.45-20.00 | National Gallery


The light and church-like Sainsbury Wing in the National Gallery holds some of the finest Renaissance altarpieces in the world.  To get ourselves into the Christmas spirit, we’ll be looking at this wonderful collection of Annunciations, Nativities and Adorations by the likes of Filippo Lippi, Piero della Francesca, Carlo Crivelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, Bartolomé Bermejo and Jan Gossaert. Wherever we look, mythical angels will be flapping their magnificent wings at us!

A huge thanks from us for helping make last night’s event so special. We are getting such positive feedback from all of the clients – some of the most glowing I’ve ever received. I was really impressed with everything you guys did so please pass on my thanks to your team as well for making it such a success.

My son Charlie and I were taken round the National Gallery by Rose Balston, and in three brief hours, we were inspired to levels of wonder. Rose has the gift of allowing you to discover things in the paintings that you would never have noticed before…I’d strongly recommend you join an Art History UK tour.
