Monochrome Painting in Black and White at The National Gallery

On view more than 50 works painted meticulously on all mediums: glass, vellum, ceramic, silk, wood, and canvas. ‘Monochrome’ explores the tradition of painting in black and white over 700 years, from its beginnings in the Middle Ages through to Modern Art today.

Paintings by old masters appear alongside works by some of the most exciting contemporary artists working today, including Gerhard Richter and Bridget Riley.

With major loans from around the world, and works from the National Gallery Collection, ‘Monochrome’ is a radical new look at what happens when artists cast aside the colour spectrum and focus on the visual power of black, white, and everything in between.

“Beauty is all the bolder in black and white”

National Gallery, London (Sainsbury Wing) from 30 October 2017 – 18 February 2018
