The National Gallery Company and its master licensee Alfilo Brands are continuing to raise awareness and expand reach to new audiences in China.

“We are continuing to expand significantly to new audiences in China,” commented Judith Mather, buying and merchandise director at National Gallery Company. “Through this collaboration we are able to raise awareness of how relevant and flexible images of our world famous paintings can be for youth and young adult markets, that also have such a wide reaching and dedicated loyal base.”

Carrie Gong, vp of marketing and strategy at Alfilo Brands, added: “As the National Gallery master licensee in Greater China, Alfilo is pleased to have formed the collaboration with KFC.

“We brought Impressionist masterpieces to the dining table; people can enjoy art visually while having their meals. Additionally, bringing art into people’s daily lives through their favourite restaurant has helped provide some comfort during the pandemic.”
