Often overlooked, it is frames, not paintings that take center stage in 'Frames in Focus: Sansovino Frames' http://bit.ly/1SiBw08

There's just one more week to see 'Inventing Impressionism': http://bit.ly/1S7gh13
Manet uses strong light to maximise the contrast between the skin, silver hair and white shirt of this reader with the darkness of his surrounds. The sitter was an artist friend, Joseph Gall.

Degas's skill and his frieze-like arrangement of racehorses in this painting was praised by critics. The picture was part of Paul Durand-Ruel's private collection. Find out more at 'Inventing Impressionism': http://bit.ly/1S7b4q7

Piero della Francesca was a pioneering mathematician, a master of perspective, and a scholar. Today, his status is comparable with that of Leonardo and Michelangelo. Find out more at this fascinating event: http://bit.ly/1Hw9yrI

This oil sketch (above) is one of several Seurat made for his monumental painting, 'Bathers at Asnières', of 1884 (below). He's focused on the figures rather than the landscape setting.

Squirrels were popular pets in England as early as the 14th century. Hans Holbein the Younger probably painted this picture during his first visit to England in 1526-8. The sitter is likely to be Anne Lovell, whose family showed squirrels on their coat of arms: http://bit.ly/1HpSkMo
