Thanks for your gift to The National Gallary - What a lady!


Thank you for your amazing legacy gift to the National Art Gallery which enabled them to purchase 'A Young Woman Kneeling at a Prayer Desk' 1813 by British artist David Wilkie. I have no link to Macia Lay other than as a member of the public who can express her thanks for this amazing deed. You will be remembered & cherished by many through this!

What a legacy!


I have just read on the National Gallery site about the amazing purchase thanks to Marcia Lay's legacy gift of a fabulous painting 'A Young Woman Kneeling at a Prayer Desk, 1813' by David Wilkie Whoever she was - she will forever be remembered & honoured in this beautiful painting with so many people able to know & admire her through this gift. I have been moved to google her & comment; am sure many more will do so! An amazing inspirational lady!
