The National Galleries of Scotland and the National Gallery, London are delighted to announce that Titian's Diana and Actaeon has been acquired for the nation from the Duke of Sutherland. The acquisition has been made possible with the generous contributions from private and public donations, Scottish Government, the National Heritage Memorial Fund, The Monument Trust, The Art Fund charity and NGL and NGS funds.
The Galleries have expressed their delight at the fantastic response to the campaign and in particular for the generous donations from the public. Over £10m was raised from donations and grants from individuals, trusts and from the public appeal. The painting will be shared by the National Galleries of Scotland and National Gallery, London and will be displayed for 5 years at each institution in turn. The purchase of Titian's Diana and Actaeon brings this extraordinary painting into public ownership and we have received assurances that the rest of the Bridgewater Collection will remain on loan to the National Galleries of Scotland for the next 21 years.
