Loans from the Collection

When you visit the National Galleries of Scotland, you might notice that an object is on loan and not out on display. The organisation is often asked to lend its artworks, most frequently to temporary exhibitions in other museums and galleries, but also occasionally for study purposes. We consider ourselves generous lenders and are proud of having a collection that is in demand around the world. In 2005 and 2006, the National Galleries of Scotland sent out approximately 470 objects per year. This figure does not include movements within the galleries for temporary displays and exhibitions.
