The National Gallery is lending 12 masterpieces to celebrate 200 years

-

The National Gallery in London is preparing for the celebrations of its 200 years of life which will take place in 2024 and announces that it will send some of its best masterpieces around the United Kingdom. The BBC website reports. These are twelve famous works of art, including ‘Venus and Mars’ by Botticelli, ‘Umbrellas’ by Renoir, ‘The Supper at Emmaus’ by Caravaggio, ‘The toilet of Venus’ by Velázquez, which will be granted in loan to 12 institutions throughout Great Britain for as many exhibitions that will open on 10 May 2024. Many of these works have never left the National Gallery before, which in the £ 95 million plans for the bicentennial celebrations also includes a show on Van Gogh, the creation of a new digital gallery to make the collection accessible around the world, a trip to the UK of art workshops and a refurbishment of the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square in London. Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller has been commissioned to create a work that celebrates 200 years of public art. There will also be a “surprise” announcement near the 200th anniversary of one of the National Gallery’s most famous works, Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. The National Gallery was established nearly 200 years ago by the British Parliament. The entire collection was moved only once, to protect it from German bombs. In fact, during World War II, the paintings were transported to temporary sites in Wales before being hidden away in a former quarry in Snowdonia for safe keeping. The Manod quarry in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd, was nearly impregnable to bombing.
