Price £14

Throw away the colour and explore trajectory of black and white paintings over 700 years, from its beginnings in the Middle Ages through the Renaissance and into the 21st century.

Running times: Monday 30 October 2017 – Sunday 18 February 2018, 10am - 2pm, 2 - 5pm & 5 - 8pm.

Paintings by Old Masters such as van Eyck, Dürer, Rembrandt, and Ingres appear alongside works by some of the most exciting contemporary artists working today, including Gerhard Richter, Chuck Close, and Bridget Riley. Olafur Eliasson’s immersive light installation ‘Room for one colour’ (1997) brings a suitably mind-altering coda to the exhibition.

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.
