Caradoc visit Dulwich Picture Gallery

On February 4th Caradoc Class went to Dulwich Picture Gallery.  After getting the train from Orpington to West Dulwich, we had a short walk to the Gallery.

Once at the Gallery we split into two groups and were taken on a tour of the Gallery, where we looked at a few pictures in more detail.  Our favourite portrait was called Mrs Moody and her children.

Did you know…the children in the picture are actually boys! Boys in dresses!

We also looked at some narrative paintings – The triumph of David and the Nurture of Jupiter both by Poussin.  Very gory stories!

We also got the chance to see a special exhibition of art work by Emily Carr.

The talks we had were very informative and we learnt a lot about the paintings.
