Reunited: The Lamentation Altarpiece

21 March 2024 - 2 February 2026

Rare display of The Lamentation Altarpiece for the first time in thirty years

For the first time in three decades, a rare masterpiece, the Lamentation Altarpiece, will be showcased, reuniting its central panel from The National Gallery of Scotland with the original wings from Compton Verney’s collection. The exhibit in their Northern European collection delves into themes of remembrance, symbolism, and storytelling. It invites contemplation of the painting's mysteries through new technical analyses and art historical discoveries, prompting reflection on the purpose and creator of the Altarpiece. This display provides a unique opportunity to appreciate the artwork's significance and unravel the narratives woven into its intricate details.
