Located at the most central point in London overlooking Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery stands tall in its grandeur providing home to some of the nations most treasured western art dating from 1250 - 1900’s.

As you enter the National Gallery you are greeted by a large dome inviting natural light into the reception area. Impressive mosaics decorate the floor as you climb the steps to enter the initial stage of the gallery. It is almost difficult to take your attention away from the murals and the interior of the building and towards the paintings, which provide the purpose of this structure.

Working your way through the gallery you witness great examples of traditional portraiture decorated with enormous frames, which possess a true sense of regality providing a curious insight into Battle, Religion & Royalty. You are then led to more impressionistic works.  The gallery contains an impressive array of french impressionist artworks in particular including Monet, Cezanne, Seurat, Gauguin, Signac and Renoir. One room contains no less than 13 paintings by Monet, which are worth the visit alone. This shift of perspective provides the experience with greater depth. The gallery also offers paintings by Van Gogh and Picasso.

You will find the gallery to be strangely vocal as a buzz of discussion makes for an interesting alternative to the silence that the complexion of more contemporary galleries usually require. Tours are run frequently throughout the day in various languages to provide a deeper narrative.

The National Gallery is a permanent exhibition, which does acquire additional art works from time to time, although the majority of works on display remain the same. With access to these remarkable artists free of charge a visit to the National Gallery is an inspiring experience not to be missed.
