  • Painting in Focus: Nicolas Poussin’s Extreme Unction

    Extreme Unction was acquired by the Fitzwilliam Museum in 2012 through the HM Government’s Acceptance in Lieu scheme, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Art Fund, and numerous charities and public donations. It is the most important old master painting to enter the museum’s collection for over a century, and makes a notable addition to the permanent collection of 17th-century French paintings.

  • French Impressionists

    The collection of works by French Impressionist painters in the Fitzwilliam Museum – some hundred and more paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures – is one of the finest in the UK.
