People normally have to travel to London to see them.

But for the past year public spaces around Cromer have been adorned with 30 masterworks - or at least full-scale copies of them.

Works by Vincent Van Gogh, William Turner and Henri Rousseau have been among those on show as part of the Pictures Around Cromer project, which was run by Cromer Artspace in partnership with the National Gallery.

A spokesman said: “The response from locals and visitors alike has been wonderful, and our linked art walks and art film sessions in Cromer Library have been well-attended and much appreciated.”

The artworks are being removed this week and next week. 

The spokesman added: “When they are down the pictures will be carefully stored and then offered as part of a loan scheme for schools, care homes, medical facilities and other local organisations in north Norfolk.”

It was the first such regional exhibition of the classic works the National Gallery has been part of.
