Manet's Painting On Tour
In addition to a lead grant of £5.9m towards the project to acquire Édouard Manet’s Portrait of Mademoiselle Claus, the Heritage Lottery Fund has generously supported a programme of activities to improve public access to this important work and extend its reach beyond Oxford. As part of this, the painting has embarked on a tour of the UK, and will return to the Ashmolean in 2014. The portrait is on display at the Royal Academy, London as part of a landmark exhibition, Manet: Portraying Life, until 14 April 2013.
