Setting the scene for the Virgin – A tour of paintings with sound and candlelight

Imagine yourself beyond the walls of the Gallery with this special low-lighted tour of some of the most beautiful paintings in the collection…

Join lecturer James Heard to discover more about the original settings of the paintings and the symbolism within them. Your procession through the Sainsbury Wing galleries will come to life through contemporary interpretations by sound artists Chris Watson and Simon Fisher Turner. The tour will include four paintings, ending in front of a candlelit scene of the Coronation of the Virgin.
