    The Olympic year obliges.

    The National Gallery, London, one of the world’s greatest art galleries of Western art, will lend to the upcoming show in Japan fabulous works from its collection.

    The show is phenomenal and unprecedented: for the first time in the Gallery’s near 200-year history, the largest selection of paintings will tour internationally out of Britain.

    A total of 61 masterpieces from the Gallery, from the Italian Renaissance to the Post-Impressionist paintings, will come to Japan.
