Date: Saturday 27 March 2021
Times: 11.00-16.30
Location: Zoom (Online)
Level: All Levels 
Tutor: Karly Allen

Course Description: Develop your own creative practice on this one-day drawing course exploring the most common subject in European art: the human body. Looking at figures entwined in combat or embrace, our focus for the day will be the spatial and emotional relationship between multiple bodies, and the potential for making exciting and dramatic drawings.

Through close observation of masterworks in the Collection including Baroque sculpture and paintings by Boucher and Le Moine, we’ll experiment with speed and mark-making to support longer periods of drawing. You’ll be guided through several exercises that will help you to understand the basic structure of the figures, capture the twists and tensions of the body, and locate the visual centre-point of a complex pose.

In the afternoon, working with more advanced materials, you’ll be supported in a sustained drawing exercise to develop a two-figure composition, exploring tone and colour to help unify your intertwined forms.

Please read the full course outline here, which includes joining information and details of the materials and equipment you will require to participate in this online practical course.

This course is part of a series on drawing the figure, including the Female Nude (28 November 2020) and the Male Nude (30 January 2021), which can be booked individually or as a series.

Drawing together an international panel of eminent scholars working on the Spanish Habsburg Court and Spanish art, this two-session conference focuses on one of the best-loved paintings at the Wallace Collection, Prince Baltasar Carlos in the Riding School

Our first session will explore the Wallace Collection painting and the questions raised by its recent restoration, including Velázquez’s technique, and the broader context that might have influenced the composition. Our second session will explore the differences between the Wallace Collection picture and the fully-accepted autograph version in a private collection, aiming to reveal the complexities of these two portraits. 

Simultaneous translation will be provided in English and Spanish during each Conference.

Interiors and the Art of Living at the Time of Riesener and Marie-Antoinette Interiors and the Art of Living at the Time of Riesener and Marie-Antoinette Dates: Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 March 2021 Times: 11.00–12.45 Location: Zoom Webinar (Online) Tutor: Christylle Phillips Level: All...

Dates: Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 March 2021
Times: 11.00–12.45
Location: Zoom Webinar (Online)
Tutor: Christylle Phillips
Level: All Levels 

Course Description: As we stage a display in the museum of our most sumptuous pieces of Riesener furniture, this course seeks to look at them in the context of interiors, and what Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord, diplomat and ex-Bishop of Autun, famously called the time of 'la douceur de vivre', literally the sweetness of being alive.

Riesener was the most celebrated cabinetmaker in Paris in the two decades before the French Revolution. He was Marie-Antoinette's favourite cabinetmaker, and delivered furniture to Louis XVI and the royal family, and aristocratic and wealthy patrons. We’ll take examples of Riesener's work, as well as pieces from other cabinetmakers, as our starting point for exploring contemporary interiors and daily occupations such as gaming, reading and writing – and the accessories needed for these activities, such as candlesticks, inkstands or game counters. We’ll also consider evolving styles, the use of textiles and panelling, and the taste for Chinese and Japanese lacquer to help you build a broader understanding of the interiors, furniture and decorative arts of the period

The Passion of Christ in Art The Passion of Christ in Art Dates: Tuesday 30 and Wednesday 31 March 2021 Times: 11.00–13.00 Location: Zoom Webinar (Online) Tutor: Dr Richard Stemp Level: All Levels  ...

Dates: Tuesday 30 and Wednesday 31 March 2021
Times: 11.00–13.00
Location: Zoom Webinar (Online)
Tutor: Dr Richard Stemp
Level: All Levels 

Course Description: From Palm Sunday until Easter, a week later, the story of Christ’s Passion is one of the most dramatic sequences of any religious narrative – and indeed, of any story, fact or fiction. Packed into the space of eight days, from the Entry into Jerusalem, until the Resurrection, is a remarkable combination of devotion and betrayal, love, loss, defeat and death – followed by miraculous new life.

All of this is depicted in the Wallace Collection’s breathtaking array of paintings, sculptures, manuscript cuttings, ivories and even jewellery. In this short course, timed for Easter week, we will examine them in detail to help distinguish the different elements of the story, explore the ways in which each was interpreted, and discuss the wider implications for art and faith. You will also discover the intricacy and subtlety of some of the Wallace Collection’s smaller works of art, which are often harder to see during a visit – one of the many advantages that online learning brings.

Dates: Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 March 2021
Times: 18.00–20.00
Location: Zoom Webinar (Online)
Tutor: Jo Rhymer
Level: All Levels 

Course Description: Timed for March’s annual celebration of the achievements of women, explore the work of French artists Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) and Rosa Bonheur (1822-1899), both of whom were successful, professional artists in a male-dominated art world.

Although their lifespans briefly overlapped, their lived experiences, choice of subject matter and style of painting are markedly different. Focusing on a small selection of works in order to look closely, we will consider the different ways in which each artist negotiated the art world to become successful in their respective fields, despite the limitations placed on women during their lifetimes.

As well as introducing some of the artists’ key works in the Wallace Collection, each session will also provide insights into the experiences of women artists in 18th- and 19th-century France. The course is also designed to help you develop visual analysis skills from looking at paintings slowly, and in detail.
