Take One Picture at NG

Jan Molenaer - Two Boys and a Girl Making Music (1629) enhanced detailProspective visitors to London's National Gallery are warned that there will be "significant room closures" on Wednesday evenings, "due to strike action by members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS)". What has this to do with the enhanced detail from Jan Molenaer’s Two Boys and a Girl making Music (1629)? Nothing, but it should be familiar to teachers who teach art to children at primary schools, because this painting was last year's inspiration for the National Gallery's Take One Picture educational scheme. An exhibition of work by pupils based on this painting will be shown in Room 1 this Spring (CLICK).
