Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

In collaboration with Royal Collection Trust, Alexandra will lead a two-day workshop in September at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, that extends her own practice as an artist by examining the use of space and time by the great artist Canaletto. Participants will investigate the vistas, spatial intricacies and journeys unfolding within Canaletto’s paintings. Then, using these discoveries as a starting point, will make further drawings exploring movement through time and space within the gardens of Buckingham Palace and the dynamic urban spaces beyond. All levels of experience are welcome. A list of materials will be supplied in advance of the event. The ticket price includes complimentary tea and coffee, and an early morning private view of the ‘Canaletto & the Art of Venice’ exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace.
