New giftware range for National Gallery

The company presents a new product range for ‘Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light’ exhibition

The National Gallery Company introduces a new product collection to celebrate the upcoming exhibition - 'Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light' (18 March - 7 July 2019) at the National Gallery. Inspired by Sorolla’s works and including pieces that reference his Iberian roots, the new collections include a variety of items from stylish homeware to fashion accessories, crafts, stationery and jewellery.

The new collection is inspired by many of the themes present in Sorolla’s work, including the seascapes for which he is renowned. Echoing the artist’s affinity with his homeland, the new collection borrows heavily from a variety of aspects of Spanish cultural life. Fringing, lace and black and red textiles reference the traditional flamenco outfits of the country, and can be found throughout the home and fashion accessories within the collection, appearing on woven baskets, hats and scarves.

The new tableware selection is inspired by the colours and themes of Sorolla’s paintings. The half glazed terracotta ceramics have been inspired by the pastel hues and delicate brushstrokes in the impressionist outdoor scenes created by Sorolla. A selection of tableware in a more traditional Spanish design is also available. For those with a taste for tapas and Spanish cuisine, a delicious confectionary offer is also available with snacks from Spanish food experts, Brindisa.

The new jewellery collection draws inspiration from some of the more vivid hues found within the exhibition, including bracelets and stunning cocktail rings and earrings from ethically-motivated, new jewellery designer Shyla, London.

The National Gallery houses one of the greatest collections of paintings in the world.

The collection contains over 2300 works including many famous works such as van Eyck’s Arnolfini Portrait, Velázquez’s Rokeby Venus, Turner’s Fighting Temeraire and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. All major traditions of Western European painting are represented from the artists of late medieval and Renaissance Italy to the French Impressionists.

With a commitment to free admission, a central and accessible site, and extended opening hours the Gallery ensures its collection can be enjoyed by the widest public possible.

The National Gallery Company Limited is owned by the National Gallery Trust; the primary purpose of the Company is to generate income for the Trust and the National Gallery, through a number of commercial operations.

The main business is to run the Gallery shops in-store and online at nationalgallery.co.uk, produce a range of commercial publications, products and services including licensing images, to both enhance the experience of visitors to the Gallery and effectively reach markets beyond the Gallery.

In October 2018, the National Gallery Company was the recipient of both Silver and Bronze medals at the London Venue Awards, for Best Historic and Best Unusual or Unique Venue respectively - cementing its position as one of London’s top establishments for both private and corporate events.

Every purchase from the shops, restaurants and venue hire generates valuable revenue for the Gallery to ensure that future generations are able to enjoy the paintings as we do today.
