National Gallery leaves lasting impression on students
On Sunday, 20 January, Senior School students and Art Scholars visited the National Gallery in London to view the ‘Courtauld Impressionists: From Manet to Cézanne’ exhibition.
The exhibition, a collaboration between the National Gallery and The Courtauld Gallery in London, has over 40 impressionist works on loan from The Courtauld Gallery, including famous works by Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Manet, and Seurat, as well as the National Gallery’s own permanent collection of works.
Rendcomb College’s Head of Art, Mel Holness, said: “It is fantastic for the students to see these works first hand. After studying many impressionist works during their studies, to have the opportunity to see them in person in such a wonderful venue as the National Gallery is truly quite the experience.”
