A stunning seascape by world-famous artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir will be on display in South Tyneside.

Renoir’s St Tropez will be at South Shields Museum and Art Gallery from 18 June – 29 August and is the first in a series of high-profile spotlight loans to the museum.

It has been lent by Birmingham Museums Trust on behalf of Birmingham City Council.

I’m sure visitors will be delighted to see this prestigious, internationally-significant artwork in South Shields this summer."
