During the 2018‒19 academic year, the programme In the Gallery is devoted to works by female artists.
Each month participants have a chance to learn more about a piece from the permanent collection through explanations provided by the team of volunteers. The volunteers give an introduction to each of the featured works – including Gabriele Münter’s Self-Portrait (about 1908), Louise Moillon’s Still Life with Fruit (about 1637) and Georgia O’Keeffe’s Shell and Old Shingle V (1926) – in order to establish a dialogue with visitors about the role played by these artists in their respective contexts.
The explanations take place in front of the painting selected for that particular month. Duration: 30 minutes approximately.
Natalia Goncharova´s Fishing (fishers), is the work selected for June:
