A famous Salvador Dali painting depicting Jesus on the cross is to go on loan to the US.

The Christ of St John of the Cross will be away from its permanent home at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow for six months from July.

It will be part of a retrospective on the artist's life in Atlanta.

The painting has left the UK six times since it was bought for Glasgow's collection in 1952. Its last outing was to London's National Gallery in 2000.

Kelvingrove will be showing Titian's Diana and Actaeon in its place throughout July.

A conservation team at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre will carry out an examination of the painting before it is shipped to the US.
