Your guests will enjoy drinks and canapes prior to the viewing whilst an art expert introduces them to the works of this most influential of painters from history.

  • After the special introduction guests will be free to enjoy a private view of the exhibition .
  • Two glasses of Prosecco and three canapes per person.
  • Come and enjoy this experience after opening hours.
