A-level study day: History of Art

(Wednesday) (Wednesday)

Through this cross-site partnership workshop, your pupils will have the opportunity to explore aspects of the National Gallery and the Historic Royal Palaces.

Pupils will contrast two paintings (the Wilton Diptych and the Byward Tower wall painting) of international gothic style that demonstrate the visual representation of King Richard II. This is a unique opportunity to view the Byward Tower wall painting, which is not often open to the public.

Objectives

In comparing these two works of art, pupils will explore the historical and social context of the period. Through object handling, pupils will also examine the materials and processes of painting on wood and stone.
