The National Gallery Masterpiece Tour 2020 – Invitation to apply

In 2020 the National Gallery will tour Degas’s Hélène Rouart in her Father’s Study, and is currently inviting proposals from UK venues to display this masterpiece.

Three successful venues will receive the masterpiece for a period of up to three months (during 2020) alongside a contribution (£5,000) towards marketing and outreach. Full details, including application guidance, can be found here.

Application is open to all non-London UK museums and galleries who meet the required standards of loan, security and environmental conditions. The National Gallery is particularly interested in working with venues who have not previously or recently borrowed from their collection, or who are located in areas of cultural or socioeconomic deprivation.

The National Gallery Masterpiece Tour is made possible through the generous support of Christie’s.
