Sunderland Museum has just opened a free exhibition entitled Castles: Paintings from the National Gallery. Amongst the loans from the nation's art gallery in London include the fairly recently acquired Bellotto The Fortress of Königstein from the North (pictured). This work, alongside five other old masters on loan from the gallery, will hang with the Sunderland Museum's own views of castles by the likes of Lowry and Clarkson Stanfield.

The exhibition, in a different form, was in Cardiff earlier this year and will head to Norwich in November.
