This is the third day after unveiling the new presentation of our collection and so far we have had extremely positive feedback from our visitors. Our visitor services team tell me that many people have been very complimentary and are thrilled by the brighter appearance of the rooms and the new interpretation of the collection.
Our most popular Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings have been relocated. Masterpieces such as Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère and Renoir’s La Loge are now on view in the rooms which were previously occupied by our Rubens and Old Masters collections. Once the refurbishment of the first floor is complete our Manets, Monets and Van Goghs will move to their final locations.
