National Gallery loans to Manchester Art Gallery exhibition

A work from the National Gallery collection is being loaned to the Manchester Art Gallery exhibition True Faith, which opens on Friday 30 June 2017.

Ignace-Henri-Théodore Fantin-Latour's 'A Basket of Roses' of 1890 will feature in the exhibition which explores the ongoing significance and legacy of New Order and Joy Division through the wealth of visual art their music has inspired.

The loan represents a compelling example of how pre-1900 European paintings can be displayed in the context of an exhibition with a popular culture focus.

The exhibition will run until Sunday 3 September 2017. Further details can be found here.
