Each year a masterpiece from the National Gallery Collection is shown at three partner venues across the UK. Applications from non-London UK venues are now invited to display Hélène Rouart in her Father's Study by Degas as part of the National Gallery Masterpiece Tour 2020.
The masterpiece features the daughter of the artist’s lifelong friend, the industrialist and collector Henri Rouart. She is shown in the family house surrounded by paintings and objects from her father's collection, including Egyptian wooden statues, a Chinese wall-hanging, a painting by Corot and a drawing by Millet.
If you are interested in showing Hélène Rouart in her Father's Study in 2020, please submit a proposal of up to 1,000 words (additional supporting documents may also be included) explaining why, and how, you would like display the painting.
Applications must be received by Friday 25 January 2019.
Application is open to all non-London UK museums and galleries who meet the required standards of loan, security, and environmental conditions. We are particularly interested in working with venues who have not previously or recently borrowed from the National Gallery, or who are located in areas of cultural or socioeconomic deprivation.
