The National Gallery in London, United Kingdom, will be working in partnership with Nikon over the next 12 months on a broad schedule of online content. A press release states that the content is aimed at “letting people take inspiration from one of the greatest art collections in the world, and also to explore the synergies between photography and fine art.”
The first feature is an online edition of Picture of the Month. The series dates back to 1942 and is temporarily held online, with a different painting under the spotlight each month.
The November 2020 picture is Jan van Kessel the Elder’s Butterflies, Moths and Insects with Sprays of Common Hawthorn and Forget-Me-Not from 1654. You can find out more about it via The National Gallery’s website.
There will also be a brand new series of films showcasing the work of the National Gallery’s conservation department and regular curator-led talks will be available across their social platforms.
In addition, there will be a series of free digital events for National Gallery Members led by Gallery Educators and Nikon will also host events with their experts. Both series will be focusing on various aspects of the National Gallery’s collection.
