Gallery B, the first new gallery space created at the National Gallery in 26 years, is due to open on the 22nd of March with a display dedicated to the 17th-century Old Masters, Rembrandt and Rubens. The new 200 sq. m space was designed by the UK-based architects Purcell.
The inaugural show includes nine works by Rubens and 11 paintings by Rembrand. All of the works are drawn from the permanent collection.
