LOVE IN ART - A St Valentine's Celebration

LOVE IN ART - A St Valentine's Celebration

There are few subjects that inspired artists as much as the subject of love. Whether platonic or erotic, celebrated or forbidden, human or divine - its all there, in the National Gallery's magnificent collection. You will be surprised how the trials and tribulations of love we experience today have all been experienced in times past ... a lover may not have been dumped by text message but literally abandoned on a remote island, yet the fascinations, fears and fantasies of those times are very much like our own.

Not for the fainthearted!
