Credit Suisse renews partnership with National Gallery up to 2024 bicentenary

We are very pleased to announce that the National Gallery is extending its partnership with Credit Suisse for a further five years from July 2020, taking us into our bicentenary year in 2024.

Since 2008 we have worked with Credit Suisse in a unique partnership that has provided vital funding for our exhibitions and learning programmes.

Credit Suisse’s support has enabled us to realise some of our biggest and most successful exhibitions including ‘Leonardo da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan’ and ‘The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Monet and Architecture’. In the past ten years, we have welcomed more than 1.6 million visitors to our Credit Suisse sponsored exhibitions and we look forward to the first of these in our next phase of partnership, ‘The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Raphael’, opening next autumn.

An integral part of the partnership is Credit Suisse’s support of the National Gallery’s collaboration with City Year UK, a cultural development opportunity for students from inner city schools in London and the East Midlands. Since the beginning of this collaboration, more than 200 students have participated in the programme.

Our long-term partnership with Credit Suisse helps us to plan for the future and continue to be ambitious and innovative. 'Long term corporate support of the arts is essential in the current climate' said National Gallery Director, Gabriele Finaldi. 'It enables us to share the collection with the widest possible audience and give each visitor a meaningful experience. Credit Suisse’s support of the Gallery means we can look forward to achieving our ambitious goals for the future.'

We are proud to have such a longstanding partnership with Credit Suisse, which will now span 17 years.
