We joined London Drawing Group for a day of exploration in the Male gaze and Female Sexuality. Soaring through the National Gallery we became familiar with the versatile lives of women centuries past, the positioning imposed by the male artist and striking stories behind the art, ranging from accounts of the artists lives to thrilling mythology and gut wrenching sagas. If you’ve ever stuck your nose up at a Degas in favour of an Emin, this tour is guaranteed to change your mind...

...Welcome London Drawing Group, a budding group of vigilante tutors who host a series of enthralling classes held at the National Gallery. These art enthusiasts are equipped with an extensive familiarity of fine art and the evident passion to let you know about it too. The all-day class is a great chance for anyone with an interest in gender, media, art or reaching the end of the day feeling a little smarter than the day before to develop an understanding of how the gaze plays a significant part in painting. Complete with full historical insight, informed personal response and jaw dropping back stories that could make for a cracking EastEnders episode, our tour takes us from the recognisable images of Leonardo Da Vinci’s, “Madonna of the Rocks” to a less commercially viable depiction of gruesome decapitation in Johann Liss’ “Judith in the Tent of Holofernes”.
