Assuming that the news is true that the NPG has now succeeded, as rumoured (see below), in acquiring Omai jointly with the Getty, then it is a remarkably impressive achievement of Nick Cullinan to have negotiated it through the jungle of valuation, Treasury caution, and brokering an unprecedented, but admirable international arrangement across two continents in time for the re-opening of the NPG in June, where it will presumably – and rightly – have pride of place as an emblem of Empire/discovery/multi-culturalism. An amazing acquisition.
