Study Visit: Bruegel to Freud

On the 19 September tutors Sarah West and Mike Griffiths will lead a study visit to The Courtauld Gallery : Bruegel to Freud exhibition & The Jerwood Drawing Prize Exhibition.
The former is a special display which offers an introduction to the largest but least known part of the Gallery’s outstanding collection – its holding of prints.

The selection includes works by Mantegna, Bruegel, Canaletto, Picasso, Matisse and Freud. We will look at these works, think, reflect and discuss around this large areas of media. We will consider the aim and aesthetics of the works, how they are contextualised within art history, their relationship to the artists’ paintings, the imagery and the techniques. There will also be an opportunity to talk about similar concerns in your own works, if applicable.
We will then travel to The Jerwood Space to see The Jerwood Drawing Prize Exhibition. Selected from original art works, with decisions based on the work presented, the Jerwood Drawing Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence and promoting contemporary drawing practice within the UK.

The open exhibition is a platform for drawing practitioners to showcase their work alongside other leading contemporary artists in this field, and provides those selected with the opportunity to contribute to the dialogue and understanding about drawing for current and future generations.
The span of the work shown is extremely wide ranging and is equally a fantastic opportunity for students, emerging and more established artists.
