Art Department visit National Portrait Gallery

On Tuesday 17th November, Fifth Year art students visited the 'exhibition of the moment' at the National Portrait Gallery entitled 'Giacometti-pure presence'. This exhibition showed the development of Giacometti's style through his early paintings and sculptures and cleverly highlighted the links between the two. It was also interesting to see how he drew inspiration from a small circle of friends and his family. His fluid drawings and painting will certainly inspire students in both their current projects but also as they approach the Art examinations in early January.
