'Colour' Exhibition Planned for the National Gallery
Date Posted: 26/07/13
London's National Gallery is planning an exhibition called 'Colour' which will begin next summer.
Taking place in the venue's Sainsbury Wing, it's due to chart colour through history, looking at how it has been created in art over the years.
Kicking off on June 18th, it will be in place until September 7th next 2014, and could offer a great summer art experience to people enjoying London breaks next year.
Visitors are set to gain an insight into how colours used in art have been sourced, for example from minerals in the exhibition. It will cover a 700 year period of history and every room will focus on a different shade, with one room focusing on silver and gold.
Ceramic work, textiles, glass and minerals will also be on show, as well as paintings. And besides this exhibition there will, as always, be much more to see at the gallery for those visiting.
