Artemisia Postponed

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the National Gallery has been obliged to postpone the forthcoming Artemisia exhibition. Current global travel restrictions mean we are unable to proceed with opening the exhibition on 4 April as originally planned.

Naturally, we are all very disappointed about this delay, but it is sadly unavoidable.

We hope to open 'Artemisia' as soon as possible, but due to the rapidly changing worldwide situation, we cannot currently give a specific date.

Dr Gabriele Finaldi, Director of the National Gallery, says:

“This was a tough decision for us to take. For logistical and organizational reasons connected with the Coronavirus outbreak, we have had to postpone the show. This is unprecedented for the National Gallery, but in these difficult circumstances, it is the right decision. We’d like to thank all our lenders, our sponsor and supporters for being so understanding and supportive of our decision. This is just a temporary postponement, and we look forward to being able to celebrate the astounding artistic achievements of Artemisia Gentileschi with everyone as soon as we possibly can.”
