The National Gallery


In this video curator Anne Robbins explores two paintings by Renoir bought by Samuel Courtauld, hanging together for the first time in 60 years, filmed as a promotional video for The National Gallery's 'Courtauld Impressionists' Exhibition.

The two Renoir paintings featured in this art video - ‘La Loge’ (1874) and ‘La Première Sortie’ (1876-77) - represent the same scene: a woman in a box at the theatre. While the paintings share many attributes, the tightly cropped frame for example, the curator draws out the differences and investigates the composition and relationship with the viewer in each painting.

Gallery curators are steeped in the knowledge related to their specialisation or the exhibition they have curated. Often we film with curators ahead of a major exhibition for which they have prepared extensively for months - delivering lectures and writing the programme notes and book editorial that accompanies the show. Our job, as the video production team, is to work with the gallery to frame the subject matter at the right level for the video audience. We do this in advance of the filming to give structure to each film, and then support the speaker on the filming day to deliver their thoughts in an engaging, concise way that will resonate with their online audience.

NextShoot is one of the few video agencies in London with experience in creating meaningful, provocative and inspiring video production for the arts sector. We produce videos for arts organisations, galleries and art philanthropists, work with contemporary artists (Christo, Tai Shani and Olafur Eliasson to name a few) and produce educational content for projects like the Louis Vuitton ‘Young Arts Project.’
