Credit Suisse sponsored exhibitions

Since 2008, the National Gallery and Credit Suisse have been working together in a unique partnership, which provides a vital funding platform for the Gallery’s exhibitions programme.

Credit Suisse have sponsored some of our most exciting and successful exhibitions in recent years: 

More than 75 paintings by Monet, together for the very first time.
Explore the extraordinary relationship between two great Italian masters, Michelangelo and Sebastiano del Piombo, who found common ground in the fiercely competitive world of High Renaissance Rome.

Striking and often unforgiving, Goya’s portraits demonstrate his daringly unconventional approach and remarkable skill at capturing the psychology of his sitters.
