The Brontë Parsonage Museum was delighted to have Dr. Nicholas Cullinan, new Director of the National Portrait Gallery in London, dropping in today for a surprise visit with friends including Xavier Saloman, Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator of the Frick Collection in New York.

This display will then move to the Morgan Library and Museum in New York.
