Choirs of Angels: The Mystic Nativity

Monday 14th December 6.00pm

Join us for a Christmas lecture in which we explore the beautiful Mystic Nativity by Sandro Botticelli. Why do angels feature so prominently in this particular painting, and how do they appear in other paintings at the National Gallery?  Learn how to tell your cherubim from your seraphim as we go angel spotting in the gallery and discover there’s more to being a heavenly creature than harps and haloes.

This is a live lecture which will be given by Siân Walters at 6.00pm GMT.  Tune in from anywhere in the world to watch or enjoy a recorded version of the lecture which can be accessed for up to 24 hours afterwards.

The lecture will last one hour and will be followed by questions which Siân will answer live.
