About

Join us for a free descriptive gallery tour exploring art through audio-description and conversation, followed by a practical workshop for visually impaired visitors. In this session we will explore this blockbuster exhibition featuring works from the National Galleries outstanding collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, including works by Monet, Gauguin and Van Gogh. We will learn about the pioneering Scottish collectors who had the foresight to invest in the avant-garde at a time when these artists were little known or unpopular and engage in a game of fake or fortune!
