Printed trails

Download and print out a trail to learn more about the collection. Focus on related paintings and the stories that they tell. 

Do check in advance the location of any paintings you're particularly interested in seeing; they may have been relocated to a different room in the Gallery or, from time to time, taken off display on loan or in our Conservation Department.

Please note, we are unable to print trails at our Information Desks.
