Það sem verður gert

Discover the hidden black presence in the National Gallery.

You'll be introduced to the religious, cultural and social significance of the often hidden black presence in the works on display in the National Gallery in London, by the end of each tour you'll be able analyse the black presence in other pictures.

The black presence takes different forms, from subjects of economic capital to creators of cultural capital, explicit and implicit, musicians, kings, slaves, servants, saints and artists, sometimes just as people.

I'll be looking at many different works of art by different artists to show you those various presences and what they mean.

I'm a Senior Fellow of Institute of Commonwealth Studies, degrees in Physics (1974) and Art History (2008). A cultural art historian, academic and blogger, my specialism and passion is the black presence in European art.

I’ve spoken on the black presence at many institutions including National Archive, British Library, Tate Britain and V&A museum.

The black presence goes from subjects of economic capital to creators of cultural capital; explicit and implicit; musicians, queens, kings, slaves, servants, saints, artists, sometimes just as people.

I look forward sharing my passion with you

Staðsetning

The National Gallery is one of the world’s greatest collection of European art. Hidden in its collection of over 2,500 works there are black presences most times hidden. I'll take you round the Gallery introducing you to many different works of art revealing their black presence to you: from subjects of economic capital to creators of cultural capital; musicians, kings, slaves, servants, saints and artists, sometimes just as people.

Michael's tour is well worthwhile. He imparts fascinating information through his storytelling around each painting which has been carefully selected to link in with his main theme. His enthusiasm for the subject is communicated effectively and he provided us with a real historic and cultural insight.

I absolutely loved both Michael and the tour!! It was both very engaging and informative. When I return to London, I plan on attending his other tour. Highly recommended!

This was a really informative and enjoyable experience, Michael is truly an expert and goes well above/beyond to explain the black presence in paintings themselves but also in the history of the building and through non-black subjects in other paintings. He shows you things in the gallery but also takes care to build understanding and context by showing you more detail on his iPad as well. He was really patient and generous with his time and clearly very passionate about his work. Thank you Michael!

I thoroughly enjoyed this! Michael has a passion and expertise on this area that made this experience unique, informative and fun. In addition to seeing elements differently on this museum visit, I feel that I will see things with a more curious and informed eye going forward.

This tour was very informative. I learned a lot and wouldn't see and interpret the details of the arts (with black people) right if i went to the museum by myself. And the host Michael is enthusiastic and passionate, that makes you wanna hear more of his knowledge. I definitely recommend!

This was a really great tour. Michael has such a depth of knowledge about art history, the cultural contexts that the art was produced in, and the hidden histories embedded in the paintings on display. I've been to the National Gallery lots times over the years, but it was really illuminating to see it again through Michael's eyes. He's a super passionate and engaging guide - I learned so much about the place of people of colour in European art that is just not made visible elsewhere. It should be an essential tour for anyone interested in art!
