and the National Gallery

In November 2020, Nikon became the Gallery’s first Digital Content Partner in a year-long partnership

The Gallery will work with Nikon on a broad programme of online content which aims to inspire people with one of the greatest art collections in the world, and will explore the synergies between photography and fine art.

The content programme will include the following series:

- Picture of the month
- A newly devised Conservation series 
- Curator-led 10-minute talks
- Special online talks for National Gallery Members – sign up here.

This partnership was devised in response to the nationwide lockdown, which saw the Gallery’s online content become vitally important.

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

"When the National Gallery first had to close its doors for 111 days due to the pandemic, our digital programming and online community flourished – open 24/7 with free art for everyone, anywhere online… It is a critical time for the arts; a sector that we know is an invaluable resource for our mental wellbeing. Support from businesses like Nikon means we can carry on bringing great art to the widest possible audience."

Julian Harvie, Head of Marketing for Nikon Northern Europe said:

"Nikon is delighted to be supporting the National Gallery as their Digital Content Partner for the coming year. As a brand that enables photographic artistry at the highest level, we are proud to be working with such an iconic institution to inspire and educate our online audience, looking to the past better to empower our creative vision today."
