For the first time ever, a major retrospective of photography will be taking place at the National Gallery.

The show looks at how photographers from the 19th Century to the present day have taken an inspiration from the Old Masters.

Almost 90 pictures by leading British and French photographers, including Martin Parr, Craggie Horsfield, Sam Taylor- Wood, Richard Billingham and Julia Margaret Cameron, will be hung alongside works from the Gallery's collection, and there'll be specially commissioned videos.
