FEMALE SEXUALITY AND THE MALE GAZE in the National Gallery
Fri 7 April 2017, 11:00 – 17:00 BST
Female Sexuality and the Male Gaze in the National Gallery.
Join London Drawing Group for a day-long workshop held in the National Gallery that questions the role of female sexuality in painting, explores the nuance of the nude and how the male gaze has permeated notions of female sexuality throughout history. The day will begin with a guided tour around some of the National Gallery’s most dazzling nudes, with in-situ discussions and talks concerning the stories behind the stares. Throughout the day you will be guided through this topic by a series of drawing exercises and techniques that aim to explore the power of the gaze.

London Drawing Group’s ‘Drawing Tours’ are a fantastic new series of workshops designed to help both professional artists and complete beginners experience the joys of the London galleries and museums in a new way.
Through our subject-specific guided tours you will draw from the surprising histories and personal stories behind well-known works housed in London’s most iconic buildings, and through the expertise and guidance of our tutors, experience the paintings in a totally different light.
