For the first time, the National Art Gallery is putting on a major exhibition which focusses on photography. It will explore both the works of modern and early photographers alongside a number of historical paintings by Constable, Degas and Ingres.
Visitors will discover how photographers have been influenced by fine art, such as Old Master paintings, and will include work by contemporary artists like Martin Parr and Craigie Horsfield, as well as featuring pictures by some the earliest and greatest British and French photographers such as Gustave Le Gray.
The exhibition is split up into galleries according to genre: portraits, still life, landscape, etc, and will allow you to compare and contrast themes from present work to that of the past.
Including an optional Gift Aid donation, adult tickets are £13.20, seniors are £12.10, and under 18s are £6. The exhibition will open on 31st October, and last until 20th January. It will be open between 10am-6pm except on Fridays, where it will remain open until 9pm.
