London’s National Gallery is looking for nine venues to host a tour of Old Master paintings from its collections to regional museums and galleries. The Masterpiece Tour is part of the National Gallery’s aim to promote the understanding, knowledge and appreciation of Old Master paintings to a wider audience. The paintings are Manet’s The Execution of Maximilian; Canaletto’s A Regatta on the Grand Canal; and Rembrandt’s Self Portrait at the Age of 63. One painting each year will go on the road between 2014 and 2016. Each tour will run from January to July and visit three different regional museums, spending around six weeks in each.
Any museum or gallery can apply to take part and the deadline for applications is 24th April 13.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal you can find our more from the National Gallery website.
