The remaining loaned works from the 28-piece collection of Robert Standish Gage Prendergast Vereker, 7th Viscount Gort (1888–1975) enter the WAG collection.
The Gort Collection, as it has come to be known, first came to the Gallery as a loan in 1955. Gradually, through the 1960s and 1970s, the entire collection, which included altarpieces, paintings, and tapestries mostly dating to the 15th and 16th century Northern Renaissance, entered the WAG’s collection.
