Sir Henry Wellcome was an enthusiastic traveller and collector – amassing well over a million books, paintings and objects from around the world. Most of his collecting was in the two areas that fascinated him the most – health and medicine. ‘Medicine Man’ is a free permanent display of a small part of that huge collection.
The National Gallery
Founded in 1824, the National Gallery houses a collection of over 2,300 paintings dating from the mid-13th century to the 1900’s. The blockbuster show which runs until 17th January 2021 is Titian: Love, Desire, Death.
The exhibition reunites all six paintings in the series, from Boston, Madrid and London, for the first time in over four centuries. Included are ‘Diana and Actaeon’ and ‘Diana and Callisto’, works owned jointly with the National Galleries of Scotland.
