'Artemisia' postponed

‘Artemisia’ will not open as originally planned on 4 April 2020 due to current global travel restrictions.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have postponed our forthcoming exhibition, ‘Artemisia’.

Current global travel restrictions mean we are unable to open the exhibition on 4 April as originally planned.

We are very disappointed about this delay but it is sadly unavoidable.

We hope to open ‘Artemisia’ as soon as possible but due to the rapidly changing worldwide situation, we currently cannot give a specific date.

We look forward to sharing Artemisia’s work with you as soon as possible.

A message from Dr Gabriele Finaldi, Director of the National Gallery

“This was a tough decision for us to take.

"For logistical and organisational reasons connected with the coronavirus outbreak, we have had to postpone the show. This is unprecedented for the National Gallery but in these difficult circumstances, it is the right decision.

"We’d like to thank all our lenders, our sponsor and supporters for being so understanding and supportive of our decision.

"This is just a temporary postponement, and we look forward to being able to celebrate the astounding artistic achievements of Artemisia Gentileschi with everyone as soon as we possibly can."
