Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of National Gallery  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

The tradition of painting in black and white, using only black and white pigments, has existed from the Middle Ages all the way through the Renaissance, and right up to the present day.

The National Gallery will be holding the first major exhibition on the subject, explaining where and when grisaille painting was used, and to what effect: from early religious works to modern printmaking, photography, and film.

There will be a wide variety of works on display, created on glass, vellum, ceramic, silk, wood and canvas, by artists such as Leonardo, Rembrandt, Degas, Picasso, and Gerhard Richter.
