Broadway museum displays paintings from the Ashmolean collection
Paintings by world-renowned artists have been put on show at a new museum in a Worcestershire village.
The Ashmolean museum has lent items to an exhibition at the Tudor House, High Street, Broadway, which was originally a 17th Century coaching inn.
The Oxford-based museum has loaned paintings by Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough, plus tapestries, Worcester porcelain and furniture.
Worcestershire County Council gave the project a grant of £200,000.
The top floor of the new museum will stage further exhibitions by local artists and community groups.
Prof Christopher Brown, from the Ashmolean museum, said: "The museum in Broadway will bring the Ashmolean's collections to a new and wider audience."
