DUNDEE.- More than 140,000 people have seen Titian’s Diana and Actaeon since the painting’s tour of Scotland commenced in May this year. The 16th century masterpiece is currently on display at the recently refurbished The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum, where it was viewed by almost 2,500 people during the exhibition’s opening weekend. The painting has already been on show in Glasgow and Aberdeen in celebration of the first anniversary of its acquisition for the nation. Culture Minister Fiona Hyslop visited the McManus Galleries today, during a visit to Dundee as part of her summer tour. She said: “Having been acquired for the nation, it is absolutely right that Titian’s Diana and Actaeon is made available to as wide an audience as possible. I am delighted the tour is proving such a success. Diana and Actaeon is an exceptional and powerful work of art and it is fantastic to see it being enjoyed by so many people acr
