Manet to Picasso
The National Gallery, London, has rehung its 19th-century collection - mainly Impressionist paintings - in the brand new Sainsbury Wing. Manet to Picasso opened today, 22 September, and continues until May 2007, admission free. Sainsbury may not know much about art - Tesco's own-brand packaging in patriotic red, white and blue shows far more artistic savvy than does Sainsbury's packaging -, but at least it recognizes a brand leader in the art lark. Building a new wing for the National Gallery must be worth a bob or two in free advertising. Smart business move, Sainsbury.
