Painting History: Delaroche and Lady Jane Grey DVD
In the aftermath of the French Revolution, the French public turned to British history as a way of making sense of its recent past. History books written in an accessible and popular style brought the subject to a wider audience, and there was an enormous appetite for historical paintings, plays, tableaux and novels.
The Execution of Lady Jane Grey was a sensation when it was first exhibited to the Parisian public in 1834. Paul Delaroche's paintings, with their historical detail and their intimate focus on the emotions of their characters, represented an entirely new genre of history painting. This art DVD looks at the circumstances that inspired both his approach and his choice of subject matter.
Discover more about Delaroche's most famous theatrical and popular masterpiece, The Execution of Lady Jane Grey, in this art history DVD, which includes interviews with experts reveal the real Lady Jane Grey and footage of historical sites around London. Discover Delaroche's techniques and influences and learn more about the wonderful Tudor costumes.
This art history DVD accompanied the Painting History: Delaroche and Lady Jane Grey exhibition at the National Gallery in 2010.
