Re-display of Poussin’s Extreme Unction
Following our successful acquisition of Poussin’s masterpiece Extreme Unction we are pleased to announce that His Grace the Duke of Rutland will be lending us three other paintings from the series: Eucharist, Confirmation and Marriage, for a special temporary display in Gallery 7 from 27 July.
In addition to works by artists such as Picasso and Henry Moore, enjoy a stunning selection of contemporary furniture, jewellery and works in ceramic, glass and silver.
A new display of Delftware has gone on display in the central island cases of the Glaisher Gallery in celebration of Michael Archer’s new book Delftware in the Collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum.
