Hong Kong Palace Museum and the National Gallery, London are offering art enthusiasts the opportunity to explore 400 years of the European art scene through the exhibition ‘Botticelli to Van Gogh: Masterpieces from the National Gallery, London.’
Happening from November 22, 2023, to April 11, 2024, at the Hong Kong Palace Museum’s Gallery 9, the event will showcase 52 paintings from 50 world-renowned artists such as Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Sandro Botticelli, Titian and many more. Visitors can expect to see iconic artworks like Botticelli’s Three Miracles of Saint Zenobiu, Van Gogh’s Long Grass with Butterflies, Caravaggio’s Boy Bitten by a Lizard, and other paintings that shaped Western art history from the 15th to the early 20th centuries. It is an excellent showcase to observe some key art movements, including the Renaissance, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism.
The National Gallery, London began the ‘Botticelli to Van Gogh: Masterpieces from the National Gallery, London’ exhibition series at the National Gallery of Australia in 2021 with the aim of bringing art lovers closer to iconic pieces from its collection without them having to book a flight to London during the pandemic. Following the massive turnaround in Australia, the British art museum took the exhibition to the Shanghai Museum and the National Museum of Korea before making its stop at Hong Kong.
This art exhibition also marks the first time that the National Gallery, London has partnered with a cultural body in Hong Kong. Tickets for the ‘Botticelli to Van Gogh: Masterpieces from the National Gallery, London’ exhibition are priced at HK$150 and are available on Klook.
