Description

Take a tour of some of London’s galleries and museums in the company of a creative portrait artist. Rosalind Freeborn specialises in seeking out some of the capital’s most curious and compelling collections and portraits within major museums as well as former homes which capture the character and history of their famous occupants. Throughout the experience, Rosalind will explain the evolution of portraiture, how people through the ages have chosen to be represented and how artists have responded to them. She will share the narratives of the subjects’ lives as well as the artists who depicted them. A typical tour will take in selected galleries at the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and the Sir John Soane Museum with the option of visiting Dr Johnson’s House, the Welcome Collection and other surprising, tucked away destinations.

While this is the perfect experience for anyone who is keen to take a trip into the history of portraiture, time spent with Rosalind is just as much an exploration of London’s hidden creative gems, providing a fresh and fascinating view of London.
