Event description

Description


When is a cat just a cat? Certainly not at the National Gallery, where animals in paintings hold a range of meanings and are particularly significant for what they tell us about ourselves.

Join National Gallery experts to hear about the rich history of animal symbolism in Western art from the Renaissance to the present day, in works by artists such as Uccello, di Cosimo, Titian, Hogarth, Stubbs and Rousseau.

From paintings of dragons to unicorns and ordinary animals, like cats, dogs and horses, we’ll explore how artists have responded to man’s complex and changing relationship with the natural world.

Tickets: £25 per person (lunches & refreshments not provided).
