The Impressionists and the Art of Walking Mindfully at The National Gallery

 

Start Date: July 17, 2016

End Date: July 17, 2016

The flâneur, observer and stroller of the city streets, parks and gardens was depicted in the art of Manet and the Impressionists.

Hear a talk by Jo Rhymer about representations of the flâneur in 19th-century French painting before experiencing the role of detached observer yourself, in a walk led by Mel Sutton and Andrew Stuck.

Discover how mindful walking can help us observe ourselves and the world around us, as we stroll around the nearby Victoria Embankment Gardens.

This promises to be a fun and relaxing exploration of the art of walking mindfully, in homage to the flâneur.

You may also be interested in the Pleasure Gardens course which immediately precedes this workshop.
