BP is to be the lead sponsor of a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition which will bring masterpieces from the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg to Britain for a unique show at one of this country’s finest historic houses, Houghton in Norfolk, opening on 17 May 2013.
The magnificent art collection, which originally hung at Houghton, was brought together by Britain’s first Prime Minister, Robert Walpole (1676-1745), and following his death was sold in 1779 to Catherine the Great of Russia and was later housed at the State Hermitage Museum.
Peter Charow, BP’s Vice President for Russia said: “We are pleased to bring the exhibition to its original home. BP is a major supporter of culture in both the UK and Russia.”
