National Treasures | Vermeer in Edinburgh

On now until Sun 8 Sep 2024

Open daily, 10am–5pm


As part of the celebrations of the bicentenary of the National Gallery in London, we are displaying the Johannes Vermeer painting: A Young Woman Standing at a Virginal.

This incredible artwork comes to Scotland as part of National Treasures, a programme celebrating the National Gallery’s bicentenary. To celebrate 200 years of the National Gallery, 12 of the UK’s most iconic and well-loved paintings from the gallery's outstanding collection have been lent to 12 venues across the UK. This means that more than half the UK population will be within an hour’s journey of a National Gallery masterpiece. 

A Young Woman Standing at a Virginal is displayed alongside an early Vermeer from your national collection.
