Art Drama Passion
art experiences – putting the story into art history

Welcome to Beyond the Palette where art history meets entertainment. I have shaken out the stuffiness so that you can revel in the narratives, beauty and sometimes obscurity of artworks in a way that is both enlightening and hugely compelling. I offer a world of online art history quirkiness as well as curated gallery art tours. Join me for a virtual art tour, or in person in the National Gallery where I’ll unveil the mysteries of a selection of paintings centred around a specific theme. If you’re looking for an unusual gift, why not consider a personalised Beyond the Palette Gift Voucher, redeemable against any advertised tour or event.

Do take a look at the Media page for new content which is updated regularly. You can also join me live on Instagram for ‘Elevenses with Lynne’ every Thursday at 11am, or you can watch later by clicking through to the Media page here.

Wherever you are and whatever your art knowledge, once you’ve found Beyond the Palette you’ll never look at paintings in the same way again. Art appreciation has never been so much fun.

I hope you’ll join me in the captivating world of art!
