It has been donated by David Posnett OBE, who was Chairman of the Holburne Museum from 2000 to 2013 (CLICK). The gift coincides with the Museum's exhibition Joseph Wright of Derby: Bath and Beyond, which opens in the Roper Gallery on 25 January. Loans for the exhibition come from the Derby Museum, the National Gallery, Musée du Louvre, Tate, the British Museum, the Walker Art Gallery and the Fitzwilliam Museum. Admission is £6.95 (CLICK).
