What you'll do

In this tour you will see the Old Master's picture gallery. I will show you the recent exhibition and art in general. not only will we be looking at individual paintings in detail, you will learn about the traditional use of paint, colouring techniques or gain insights into recent scientific research. On top you will hear about the curious tales behind the paintings. Experience art, as you have never done before. LET THE INVISIBLE APPEAR I will show you the things, you simply can not see by yourself. Insights into recent scientific research especially, will make you wonder. Look with me behind the curtain with comparative imagery like radiographies and turn into a Pro in the history of arts, easily. On top I will bring rare historic colour pigments for you to see and touch. SO THIS IS ART! If you truly want to understand a piece of art, all you need to do is find out more about it. I will tell you about the origins of paintings. Why were they made in the first place and why do all of you recognise Raphael's Sixitne Madonna as a great masterwork, but none of you has seen the painting hanging on it's right ever before. Explore the Old Masters with me.
