New Year, new reasons to visit the National Gallery shop

Posted by lfurlong 05/01/2018 0 Comment(s)



Everyone is still leaning back in to normality, so we'll keep this short and sweet. A massive Happy New Year to you all, we hope you had a restful break, enjoyed some tasty food and cleaned up playing Monopoly.





This is a short blog post just to inform you of two new things happening instore at the moment. The first is that we're currently having our annual post-Christmas sale (sorry for mentioning Christmas, but needs must). The sale includes some beautiful cards, decorations and calendars, all of which are 50% off. That's a lot.

We understand that the sight of any more Christmas-related things might be the last thing you need, but for those of you who can stomach it it's a great opportunity to be ahead of the game next year.









The second thing, as you may already know, is that every year the gallery's collection of J.M.W Turner's watercolours are exhibited for the month of January. The exhibition is an annual ritual for some visitors because these paintings never lose their appeal.







This year's Turner exhibition is a little different. Good Morning Mister Turner (running January 1st-31st) sees the iconic Turner watercolours displayed alongside the etchings and drawings of contemporary Kerry-based master printmaker, Niall Naessens. The works interact and make for an entirely new experience. It is a beautiful exhibition. We're happy to have postcards of Naessens' prints, mostly because we get to look at them while we work. We have lots of books and material on Turner, and a catalogue of Naessens' prints, for those of you making the annual pilrimage to the print gallery. We know you'll enjoy it.







See you next week!
