COMING HOME has been made possible by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, generous contributions from The Thompson Family Charitable Trust and funds raised at the Gallery’s Portrait Gala in 2017.
While venues remain closed due to COVID-19, some works are being loaned ‘virtually’, providing a focus for online exhibitions and projects from our partners.
