National Gallery Seduced by Art: Photography Past and Present

While October 2012, post-olympics, post-diamond jubilee seems light years away,  one must plan ahead for the Next Big Thing.   One never knows what the next blockbuster show or exhibition is, but in London it is always best to stockpile tickets for upcoming events that LOOK like they just might be one where tickets will sell out.

Tickets are now on sale for the National Gallery‘s fall exhibition which views Old Master painting through a new lens and is the Gallery’s first major exhibition of photography.

According to the National Gallery, “The exhibition explores early photography from the mid-19th century and the most exciting contemporary photographs, alongside historical painting. It takes a provocative look at how photographers use fine art traditions, including Old Master painting, to explore and justify the possibilities of their art.

Work by leading photographers such as Martin Parr, Craigie Horsfield, Sam Taylor-Wood, Richard Billingham, Julia Margaret Cameron and Gustave Le Gray will be on display beside key paintings from the National Gallery collection.”
