What Is Happening Now?

The acquisition of Diana and Callisto in 2012 - along with the purchase of its companion painting Diana and Actaeon in 2009 - ensures that these two superlative works by Titian will remain together on public display in either London or Edinburgh. This will ensure that the remainder of the Bridgewater Collection will also continue to be on public view for many years to come.

Artist Alison Watt stated in 2009, ‘I simply can't imagine these paintings, which I have known and loved my whole life, not being on show.’

Lucian Freud, described them as “simply the most beautiful pictures in the world”.
