Loans to the National Gallery

As part of our programme of activity to share the Collection while we are closed for our re-development project, a series of works are being displayed at the National Gallery. Works include the Gallery’s famous lifesize preparatory drawing of Henry VIII and Henry VII by Hans Holbein the Younger, known as the ‘Whitehall Cartoon’, which is now on display for the first time in over 20 years next to Holbein’s enigmatic double portrait The Ambassadors in Gallery 12.

Other loans currently on display include Gwen John’s self-portrait (Gallery 43) and Sir Thomas Lawrence’s portrait of Caroline Amelia Elizabeth of Brunswick (Gallery 31).
