Life-size reproductions of paintings from the National Gallery have been unveiled in York today for the latest stage of the Grand Tour. For the next 17 weeks, 45 reproductions of some of the Gallery’s most major works are hanging in unexpected and unusual places around the city.

These images are stunning – and they take you completely by surprise. This skull is in the painting of The Ambassadors hanging on High Petergate in the shadow of Bootham Bar.

You have to come to York to see them, they are amazing.
