Paintings on loan

ANGUS is to loan a pair of Flemish old masters to an Aberdeen exhibition in return for Angus art fans being able to enjoy the showcase close to home.

The Adoration Of The Magi and St John Preaching in the Wilderness by Pieter Breughel hang in Arbroath Library.

Aberdeen art gallery also has an example of Breughel’s work and approached Angus for a loan of its paintings to create a mini-exhibition, which will also include a picture from a private collection. The loan approval was accompanied by a request for the four painting display to be shown in Angus and there are hopes this may take place next spring.
