In the Spotlight

100 ways to wear a bra

On a cold November morning in 2006 one hundred models dressed in black knickers and bras posed on the Sainsbury Wing steps. They were there to promote a new Wonderbra that can be worn in one hundred different ways. The only concern for National Gallery colleagues was whether the public might think this was a new uniform to gather the crowds!

Upon entering here, The National Gallery Café is to the right, and to the left is the East Wing shop. Continuing through leads to the handsome Walter and Leonore Annenburg Court.
