The National Gallery of Art
Art & Culture Travel in London
London is our home town so we have an intimate knowledge of all the major art galleries and many of the smaller, more specialist galleries, as well as selected sites of architectural interest.
This past year, so strange for all of us, has been and is, very full of online lecturing which has its joys and challenges. Click on the button below to see Jacqueline's article written at the start of this relatively new experience for Christie's Education.
Everyone has missed going to galleries so Jacqueline has brought the gallery to the home with lectures for the Kensington and Chelsea Woman's Club which has remained active during the period. Her course about Madrid Galleries will be repeated on her online platform ACT@home (details and links to be announced shortly).
Jacqueline and Ian were due to go to Australia again February-March 2021 to deliver a joint tour of some of their highlights but this was cancelled until 2024! In the meantime they were asked to make short films to send which you can find on this website. You can also take a look at the wonderful initiative of The Arts Connected which has allowed members to see many short lectures. In fact Jacqueline's lecture on the painting by Velazquez launched the idea. You can see this filmed lecture by clicking on the button.
The Arts Society lectures are currently all online so both Jacqueline and Ian have continued to deliver lectures virtually all over
England, Berlin, Hamburg, Spain, Menorca, Majorca and other places they would have preferred to travel to.
Jacqueline remains busy over this year with a number of private and public teaching projects. You have to be members for some of her courses, but there are other public ones you can join. Just click on the highlighted links in the text for more details.
Jacqueline delivers lecture series and individual lectures on behalf of a range of arts-related organisations in London, including The Victoria and Albert Museum which is a great favourite of hers, where she contributes to different courses across a range of European Art. Click here. Her next Spanish Course 'From the Glories of Islam to The Golden Age' will run online from November 2nd 2021 for 6 weeks. Booking will open later in the year. Jacqueline also enjoys delivering lectures for a wonderful organisation called 'Stories of Art'. Click here Courses run all year; usually in the most prestigious clubs of London but currently online with a growing international following. The London Art History Society is also running a course from 22nd October for 5 weeks. This is called 'From Goya to Dali and Beyond' and detail will be up soon on their website. Click here
Jacqueline also writes on the subject of art history and has contributed articles to a number of publications. Her most recent book, 'A Taste of Art, London', was published by Unicorn Press in November 2019.
