The National Gallery is an internationally-renowned gallery with a name that’s recognised around the world. Every painting tells its own remarkable story, from late medieval pictures to 20th-century icons. Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Rembrandt and Van Gogh are all represented in the gallery’s collection of over 2,300 works.
We’re committed to sharing our collection with as many people as possible, which has led us to offer branding arrangements and licensing agreements for selected business partners.

Not only will you have access to The National Gallery’s paintings, you’ll also be endorsed by a prestigious international brand. The National Gallery’s logo is simple, recognisable and respected.
The National Gallery regularly stages temporary exhibitions and, through The National Gallery Company, also operates its own retail outlets. This experience has given us an exclusive insight into the commercial opportunities available for licensed products.
Paintings in The National Gallery are divided between curators according to the ‘national school’ (usually the artist’s home or adopted country) and by date. Each curator is responsible for the care, display, cataloguing and presentation of the paintings in their care. Their specialist knowledge is available to our business partners, whether you need help choosing an image or require in-depth background information about an artwork.
The National Gallery Company has designed its own exclusive products and sells them in its shops. Take advantage of this know-how by talking to us in confidence about your own plans for licensed products.
With experienced in-house sales, marketing and public relations teams, The National Gallery is able to offer guidance that’s both practical and relevant.
The National Gallery building in London’s Trafalgar Square was opened in 1838. It’s subsequently been expanded on several occasions, most recently by the creation of the Sainsbury Wing in 1991. Promotional events and product launches can be hosted in the original Victorian building or in the postmodern exhibition space.
The cafés and restaurants in the National Gallery may be booked for private events, either in association with the gallery or for separate occasions. All our catering has a strong focus on British food, with much of the produce supplied by regional specialists and rare breed farmers.
The National Gallery can support your business at all stages of product development, from conception through to launch and beyond. As well as offering commercial guidance, we’re also able to provide artistic advice – whether you need to talk to a curator, a picture librarian or an exhibition designer.
